Copyright and the Internet: Is There a Canadian Way?

Michael Geist, Feb 14, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Since the Toronto Star decided to hide its content behind a registration wall I have not been able to run Michael Geist's usually lucid material. This slide show is not much more accessible, but at least it's free and open. I couldn't hear the sound because of the plug-in, and the slides are hardly worth clicking through, but what I could see still leads me to recommend this, especially the approach advocated at the end: do nothing, do no harm. It would be nice if Geist contributed to the open internet; we need his voice. This item and the next two via the digital-copyright mailing list, which adds "The University of Toronto last week launched a new Open Access/Open Source initiative" - no link, though. *sigh*
