Request for clarification of Conservative Party Policy Declaration (copyright, patent, etc)

The following was sent in an email to key Conservative members of parliament.

As we head into an election, our community would appreciate answers some questions so that they can be used to help in our decision about who to support. While the questions are my own, I am trying to represent a group of new-media creators and audiences. The questions will focus on patent and copyright, including both domestic and foreign policy perspectives on these areas of policy. We wish to receive clarifications of some of the related policy statements from the March 19, 2005 policy declaration.

The Liberals had an easy time with this area of policy last election as the Conservative party did not provide answers to related election questions. I expect to hear quite a bit from the Conservatives this election, and wanted to offer you an early start so that we can have some clarifications published for voters to read early in the election period.
