More Conservatives = More Bad Copyright Changes

From the CBC:

"The Conservatives are promising to reintroduce controversial copyright-reform legislation if they are re-elected, according to the party's official platform released on Tuesday.

"A re-elected Conservative government led by Stephen Harper will reintroduce federal copyright legislation that strikes the appropriate balance among the rights of musicians, artists, programmers and other creators and brings Canada's intellectual property protection in line with that of other industrialized countries, but also protects consumers who want to access copyright works for their personal use," the platform document says."

While I don't speak for Wireless Nomad or our members on this point, I, for one, hope that Stephen "Noah" Harper is tossed overboard next Tuesday with his terrible copyright proposals. (As an aside, it seems to me that Dion is more like Noah, with an idealistic, grandiose rescue plan... while Harper is more like one of the guys insisting that we ignore the crazy ark-builders and "stay the course", even as the storm clouds gather and the unicorns play... BTW, does the Bible even mention the unicorns? Now you see why I do wireless, not preaching. ;-))
