» Garth Turner: copyright law everyone hates

Some interesting notes in an article on Garth Turner's blog:

And for a half hour before the main event, Dion and I met with three or four dozen bloggers, where he fielded questions on everything from a current right-wing assault on the Supreme Court to the copyright law everyone hates. Although I would not call him a digital guy, he clearly understands the power of the medium to reach increasing numbers of voters and citizens. Most importantly, as I mentioned yesterday, my very relationship with this man is worth marking. Harper read my blog and threw me out. Dion reads it, and asks us all in.

Hat tip to Michael Geist.

» Fair Copyright Montreal

The Montreal group has a great WIKI set up at FairCopyrightMontreal.org. This is an exciting trend to see, as it will allow people in the area to better coordinate with their neighbours to talk to their neighbours and their own elected representatives.

While I disagreed with the direction of both bills, the Liberal bill was far more balanced than the Conservative bill.
