Submission + - Speak Out on Bill C-32 (michaelgeist.ca)

alexo writes: Dr. Michael Geist, a law professor and the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law at the University of Ottawa, writes in his blog that the Bill C-32 Legislative Committee is accepting briefs on the controversial "Copyright Modernization Act" (a.k.a the Canadian DMCA) until the end of January 2011.

The Committee has set the following parameters for input: In order for briefs on Bill C-32 to be considered by the Committee in a timely fashion, the document should be submitted to the Committee's mailbox at CC32@parl.gc.ca by the end of January, 2011. A brief which is longer than 5 pages should be accompanied by a 1 page executive summary and in any event should not exceed 10 pages in length.

The article also contains Dr. Geist's suggestions on the possible modifications that will make this bill less skewed against consumers.

Write early, only 5 days left.
