I agree, and will do this. I hope that there will be more
petitions, given I really would like to have at least 4 at one point to
emphasize the "4 possible owners" implicated in current digital
copyright revision policy.
We want to ensure that everyone signs the first one, as it is the one
that will best define the size of our community. The other petitions
may have much fewer signatures and are being used to ensure that these
issues are adequately documented in the Hansard/etc for members of
We need to ensure that we table at least one batch of each petition
with each session of parliament, so that we show up in each index. We
have a batch of the "Petition for Users' Rights" with Timmins--James Bay
MP Charlie Angus who will table them when the house sits again, and I
hope to find an MP to table a batch of "Petition to protect Information
Technology property rights" soon for the next session. This will be the
first batch for this new petition, and we should probably have press
releases and other things ready for that event.

Please help us tell the Canadian Parliament to protect our property
rights as owners of Information Technology. Sign the petition!
