President of ACTRA: "Blah blah blah blah, I'm a mouthpiece for American big media..."

There's no good reason for Canada's noticeable failure to modernize our copyright laws in keeping with international norms – something we signalled we would do by signing the World Intellectual Property Organization treaties in 1997.

Make no mistake, WIPO is not an "international norm" -- it's the USA trying to bring the entire planet in line with their own rather unique perspective on intellectual property.

Do you really want to live in a country where college kids and single moms routinely get sued by big media?
