"Media reports last week indicated that the government
plans to introduce its long-awaited copyright reform bill within
the next few days. The bill is sure to spark widespread debate
since all Canadians -- whether consumers, creators, businesses, or
educators -- have a significant stake in the outcome.
"The internal dynamics that led to the bill are by now fairly
well known. Industry Minister Tony Clement, emboldened by last
summer's copyright consultation that generated unprecedented public
participation, argued for a forward-looking, technology neutral
bill with flexibility as a core principle. Canadian Heritage
Minister James Moore advocated for a U.S.-style protectionist
approach, with priority given to digital locks that can be used to
limit copying, access, and marketplace competition."
