It’s still out there. Summer doesn’t make it go away.
Micheal Geist has been tirelessly blogging all summer about the evil Bill C-61. An article he wrote for the Toronto Star very nicely sums up one of the many ways you are going to get screwed if it is passed. Being a criminal for using a PVR? Now that’s nuts.
If passed, C-61 instantly makes millions of Canadians criminals and liable for substantial civil penalties. Remember, it’s up to $20,000 per infringement. This is what the media industry lawyers want. This is what they dream of. They’re sharpening up their pencils and drooling at the thought of taking your money away. The kind of cash they are going to make on fees…
If you care at all about not getting your ass sued off by nasty American-owned media companies, give Geist’s stuff a read. Then call up your MP and tell him that you DO NOT WANT Bill C-61.
