Responses to a column on copyright in Canada last week in the Globe and Mail. The authors are overwhelmingly enthusiastic about author Jack Kapica's stance against the music industry, with the exception of one recording industry executive who contributes a letter containing 'corrections' of questionable veracity. Wrote Kapica, "The desperation to protect copyright was emphasized a few months back when the Canadian Recording Industry Association disingenuously offered to draft copyright legislation on behalf of the Copyright Board of Canada. Corporate interests are pushing hard for legislation that is clearly designed more for purposes far removed from their advertised intent."
