CIPPIC Calls for Copyright Consultation

CIPPIC today sent a letter (PDF) to Industry Minister jim Prentice and Heritge Minister Josee Verner calling for wide consultation on copyright legislation. Noting that copyright is a regulatory law with implications for innovation, privacy, security, education, trade, culture and consumer policy, CIPPIC goes on to observe that "the events of December, 2007, demonstrate that Canadians are alive to these issues and will demand copyright policies that are fair and attentive to Canada’s interests."
