Canadians from all corners of industry, culture, education, law and civil society oppose Canada's SOPA
Michael Geist sez, "Throughout the fall, I ran a daily digital lock dissenter series, pointing to a wide range of organizations representing creators, consumers, businesses, educators, historians, archivists, and librarians who have issued policy statements that are at odds with the Canadian government's approach to digital locks in Bill C-11. While the series took a break over the Parliamentary holiday, it resumes this week with more groups and individuals that have spoken out against restrictive digital lock legislation that fails to strike a fair balance. Recounting the series to date, it illustrates that no amount of spin can disguise the obvious opposition from groups representing millions of Canadians to the Bill C-11 digital lock provisions. This includes leading business organizations, creators groups, consumer associations, educators, librarians, representatives of the visually impaired, civil liberties groups, archivists, and historians."
