Simcoe North MP Bruce Stanton on C-11

Copied from a post to the Fair Copyright for Canada Facebook group.

Good Afternoon Samuel:

Thank you for your recent correspondence on the Bill C-11, the Copyright Modernization Act. I appreciate your comments and concerns and welcome the opportunity to respond.

Bill C-11, The Copyright Modernization Act, is an effort to modernize Canada's copyright laws and align them with international standards on the use and sharing of creative material. Once implemented, the Bill will promote innovation and creativity in Canada's arts community. It is an attempt to ensure Canada can compete in the digital economy.

With new social media, device technology and digital locks, we must recognize Canadian producers and creators have a) a right to expect fees for their works and b) the ability to protect their business ventures.

I hope you will find this information useful. Thank you for taking the time to write.
