Copyright Bill C-32– who gains, who loses?

February 28, 2011 at 12:00 am Leave a comment

In this post, I depart from my usual format of reflections. Copyright and the creative and intellectual copy of its creators is important in this time, and has far-reaching implications.

Writers organizations, actors, screen writers and artists have made their objections to government regarding the long-term consequences of the act, should it be passed as it stands. Being a writer myself, I need to pay attention and act. As an editor and member of the Editors’ Association of Canada, I am aware that the bill, should it be passed, will have major implications on work available to us.

What I do know is that writers and those who create will suffer. Nino Ricci and other authors express their deep concerns in the video on this site.
