Speak Out on Copyright: The Bill C-32 Edition

Michael Geist, Weblog, Jan 17, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As Michael Geist says, "Even if you have spoken out before, it is important to speak out again." Here's what he has to say to the committee:
- Initial Comments from June, 2010
- Opening Statement to the C-32 Committee
- A Compromise Position
The elements of the compromise position are worth restating:
- clarify that it is only a violation to circumvent a digital lock where the underlying purpose is to infringe copyright.
- codifying the six-part fair dealing text within the Copyright Act: (1) the purpose of the dealing; (2) the character of the dealing; (3) the amount of the dealing; (4) alternatives to the dealing; (5) the nature of the work; and (6) the effect of the dealing on the work.
- identify alternative mechanisms for providing financial supportive to Canadian creators.
