Le premier billet en français de digital copyright

Bonjour à tous,

Pour le premier billet en français sur digital-copyright.ca, j'aimerais souligner la présence Québécoise sur Jamendo.com. L'écoute des albums "8 jours" (par Gars Trans) et "Le Grand Voyage" (par Zénon) est à ne pas manquer.

J'espère, avec le temps, que la présence Franco-Canadienne sur Jamendo et d'autres sites de musique libre va se diversifiée et qu'on y retrouvera la musique de Franco-Ontariens, Acadiens, Franco-Saskois et de tous les autres Francophones du Canada.

Commentary on Captain Copyright

I have my own commentary on the Captain Copyright website. A collegue, MC, attempted to send his thoughts to the Captain but unfortunately the Captain does not seem to be ready to receive e-mail yet. I'm reprinting those comments (with permission) as inspiration to others who might want to send a balanced comment to the Captain.


I just stumbled on your website. It's quite interesting. As a software developer I think it is important that people understand the importance of copyright. However, while the information that is contained on the website is quite accurate, I am a bit worried that children will emerge thinking that there is only one way to deal with copyrighted information.
