    The cake was a re-run, so he pulled it.

    Torrance, it was a repost, so I nuked it.

    I listened to it and took a few notes. I don’t pretend to know anything about Canadian copyright law, or how it’s transforming. But I listened to Geist speak and I heard issues addressed, but I did not hear any specific answers given. He said that real counterfeiters have to be punished, but what does that mean? Is Canada going to go after China?

  4. The Unusual Suspect says:

    It means that Canada should (and does) support international efforts to curb counterfeiting of creative works.

    It also means that Canada should not (and so far does not) support the efforts of cartels in the U.S. to criminalize Canadians and Americans who have (always legally) copied creative works for fair use (personal, archival, critiquing, scholarly etc.)
