Michael Geist says that flip-flopping Jim Prentice may announce his Canadian DMCA bill tomorrow morning after all, following what looks like pressure from the US, and a government that doesn't want to appear "weak".Like I said before, this thing won't die until we cut off its head, sew its mouth full of garlic, and bury its head at a crossroads.

If they do, the thousands of Canadians who thought it was smart of him to actually pause and consult the voters on this bill will be furious.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
