Is Prentice's Copyright Bill Born in the U.S.A.?

Michael Geist, Weblog, Feb 05, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some disturbing reporting from Michael Geist discussing the influence of the U.S. government on pending Canadian copyright legislation, and even more so, reports that a Canadian agency, the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA), is urging the U.S. government to step up the pressure. "The concern expressed by tens of thousands of Canadians is that calls for balance have not been heard," writes Geist, "drowned out by the vocal lobbying from the U.S. and well-connected lobby groups." Geist also documents some very misleading langauge from Microsoft on this issue.
