Submission + - Canadian DMCA protest (boingboing.net) 1

ThePurpleBuffalo writes: Cory Doctorow has announced that Jim Prentice will be in Calgary, Alberta, Canada tomorrow (Saturday, 2007-12-10) and that this might be the best chance to fight the Canadian DMCA. From the article: "If you're a Canadian and you want to talk to Industry Minister Jim Prentice about his proposal for a Canadian DMCA, a copyright law that's even worse than the ten-year-old American legislation that resulted in lawsuits against 20,000+ Americans without stopping infringement or paying artists, now's your chance!"

Canadian DMCA protest

  • Please, if you live in Calgary, or anywhere near there, go speak on my behalf. I've called the Minister's office, as Cory D suggested. But I'd love for my protest against this Digital Millennium Copyright Act redux Canadian style to be in person. So, please do it for me, for my children, my husband, my parents, my brothers, and everyone else in Canada. We do NOT need a defective law that is only protecting the interests of multinational corporations. We need a "FAIR" copyright law as Dr. Michael Geist
