« [Dec 7] CANADIANS! Tomorrow is your best chance to fight the Canadian DMCA!
We Do Count

You were such a P.Y.T. [Dec 11] »

An update to my previous post on the impending Canadian DMCA:

“The government last week filed a notice indicating the bill would be introduced this week, leading industry experts to expect it to happen on Tuesday. But a spokesperson for Industry Minister Jim Prentice, who was to introduce the bill, said it would not happen on Tuesday and could not say if it would happen this week.” - Copyright reform bill critics eye victory @ CBC

Sources say the minister had no idea that this would be such a big deal for Canadians.

It’s easy to feel that as an individual voter we wield little political power; however, this minor victory shows that we still have power in numbers. The Facebook Fair Copyright group started by Michael Geist, the Canada research chair of internet and e-commerce law at the University of Ottawa, will likely reach 13 thousand members today.

I would still urge you to write, fax or call Mr. Prentice if you’re concerned about fair copyright reform in Canada. See: Example Letters
