Jesse Hirsh on The Clash Over Copyright

Cultural and technology activist Jesse Hirsh interviewed on CBC about C-61 and some of the possible outcomes of creating a "war on copyright".

While I don't agree with Jesse that Canada's current law is lax given our law is currently far more tilted in favour of copyright holders than the USA was before their ratification of the 1996 WIPO treaties. Our already strong Canadian Copyright law is in fact why a Canadian DMCA will make our laws considerably worse than the US situation which is greatly harming their international competitiveness.
