The First Session of the 39th Parliament was opened today with a Speech
from the Throne. While copyright is not one of the priorities of this new
government, the Liberal Heritage critic Mauril Bélanger is already calling
on the government to "introduce during this Session of the 39th Parliament
copyright legislation to incorporate the amendments recommended in 2005
amending the Copyright Act by implementing the provisions of the WIPO
(World Intellectual Property Organization) Copyright Treaty as well as
updating certain other provisions of the Act."
We need to ensure that all parliamentarians hear from constituents that
will explain to them why this is a bad idea for Canadian creators' and the
rest of Canadian society.
Please go to http://digital-copyright.ca and select the option to "send
a letter to your member of parliament". If you have the time to customize
the letter, please do so. For greater effect you could print your letter,
sign it, and mail it to the parliamentary address of your member of
parliament (free postage).
If you have not yet signed the Petition for Users' Rights, please go to
http://digital-copyright.ca/petition/ , print out the petition, sign it
(and get some friends to sign), and sent it to us. We want to make sure
that petitions are tabled in the new government, requiring an answer to
our petition from the new government.
