The Canadian Copyright Act

posted Jun. 15, 2008

The amendments to the Canadian Copyright Act presented on June 12 doesn't benefit all Canadians.
Not only should I be able to circumvent digital locks to make backups of CD's & DVD's that I purchased. I should also be able to make remixes & mash-ups of them for personal use. I find it asinine that in this day and age our Government would make Non-commercial remixing illegal.
In My Humble Opinion the amendments to the current Copyright Act has nothing to do with Artists nor does it foster creativity and innovation. I believe it's a ploy to extend the life of outdated 3rd party business models of large Corporations in order to increase profits until such time that these old 3rd party bussiness models can be implemented in the digital realm.
