A CBC article has an interesting idea from ACTRA
The union for Canada's English-language performers is fuming over the government's decision to delay copyright reform legislation, demanding Minister of Industry Jim Prentice to "do the right thing" and ignore the protests of a "vocal minority.
Given the opponents to WIPO Internet treaty ratification include many high profile ACTRA members, exactly which group is a "vocal minority" -- those groups fearful of modern technology (and thus support the WIPO Internet treaties), or those groups who see modern technology being in the hands of independent creators and other private citizens as an asset?
It is sad that an increasing number of creators have to work outside of their traditional "support" organizations in order to get their views heard on critical questions around Copyright. Creators should be watching their associations very closely to ensure that they aren't pushing policy that ends up greatly harming the interests of creators (such as supporting anti-circumvention legislation)!
