So little, so late: Canada’s Gear and New Media Envy

I was interviewed for an article by Mike Vardy that discusses barriers in Canada to content and technology. While referencing the comparative strength of US and Canadian law (Hint: US is more lax), I also referenced current CANCON rules.

“I think everybody sits around and complains but no one figures out why,” suggests McOrmond, who is based in the nation’s capital. “The problems are coming from inside Canada. We are actively refusing content. CanCon rules should not apply to retail. Why should CanCon rules apply to Netflix but not to WalMart? It’s these silly rules.”
