Canada fighting bad copyright law
I’ve written before about copyright, and copyfighters. In the end it is my belief that the DMCA law in the US does more harm than good both to the consumer and the creator of content. I also think that it serves to quell culture. The most worrisome fact is that big content is pushing for even more draconian laws than what the DMCA already grants and it seemed that Canada was poised, until this group fought out, to pass this more draconian set of rules.
Again Techdirt has a good article pointing me to the video created by Michael Geist about how and why Canada fought against the government from introducing a draconian DMCA-like bill in Canada. If you are clueless as to why copyright matters in today’s society this video is a must watch.
