Content, Copyright & The Internet -- The Reality

There was a Forbes article published today, authored by Ed Black, President and CEO of The Computer & Communications Industry Association. It discussed the lack of credible evidence of serious harm to the entertainment industry from online infringement, as well as the considerable collateral damage to other businesses and the economy as a whole from policies like PIPA and SOPA.

The same is true of Bill C-11, which has a massive Paracopyright component which lacks any evidence will improve the livelihoods of copyright holders, but which causes considerable harmful collateral damage to owners of information technology, the competitive technology sector, and large parts of the economy which is intermediated by the use of information technology.
