Copyright Bill C-60 Released

Law professor Michael Geist has announced through his blog that the controversial Canadian copyright Bill C-60 has been released. The entire text of the bill is available here (pdf).

I’m still trying to decipher the legalese related to education, but I’m assuming Geist is correct in saying that “the recording industry is the big winner with an enormous basket of new rights and individual Canadians are the big losers as the bill does little to address their interests.” I am sure there will be a lot of commentary around this Bill and I’ll try to bring in the big points, as they surface, as updates.

  1. The average Canadina actualy has no idea this is going on, and they need to be made aware. Anytime our basic rights are being changed this is a nesessity!
