Sorry to add another possibility to our list of names. I also just
created a WIKI page for our list.
Susan Crean is dropping over here this afternoon and for supper to chat.
While she has convince me that I too am a creators' rights advocate, the
methods we have chosen to reach our goals are quite different.
What makes them different? The only thing I can come up with is a
generation thing. She has been involved in copyright reform from the days
when it really was just a group of intermediaries and special "user"
groups like libraries. This has now changed recently with digital
creators and users that are part of the new millennium of creativity.
Since we started out as the Canada Digital Millennium Copyright Act
Opponents, having the new name have Digital Millennium in it just seems
fitting. The acronym of DMCUA is just one letter different than DMCA, and
includes the alliance aspect of the Creators' Rights Alliance.
