Canada & Copyright Revision

Canada's controversial Bill C-32 is in a race against time -- in the
form of a forthcoming general election to be called this year --
probably in the spring or fall.

One of the major battles being fought is over whether there should be a
move towards a fair use system, an increase in the scope and number of
exemptions, or a decrease in same. 

I have brought together most or all of the government material, the
Parliamentary Committe proceedings, several briefs, and some commentary
on the substance and process of the revision effort. Facilities are
provided for sending an E-mailed Fax to the responsible Ministers.

See and follow the revision link.
