a preliminary analysis and summary of Canada’s proposed copyright bill, aka Bill C-60. Geist writes, “There is simply no denying that the lobbying efforts of the copyright owners, particularly the music industry, have paid off as they are the big winners in this bill. The bill focuses almost exclusively on creating new rights for this select group…” This is definitely a file to follow in the weeks and months ahead.
Later…Geist has followed up with a Bill C-60 Users Guide that goes through it point by point. Good reading.
