Michael Geist is reporting today that the Canadian government will launch copyright consultations on Monday that will include online discussion forums:
The Government of Canada has committed to modernizing Canada???s copyright laws, to provide meaningful rights for creators and promote the use of digital technology by its citizens. We are consulting to ensure that all perspectives are taken into account in an open and transparent process, to help deliver new legislation in the Fall that is forward-looking, reflects Canadian values, and strengthens Canada???s ability to compete in the global digital economy.
It will be critical to have involvement from content users and innovative, creative thinkers so we have balance in the Bill that comes out of this process.
