Canadian DMCA introduced

Deb sez, "Dr. Michael Geist has just blogged that the proposed legislation is on the Notice Paper for the Canadian Parliament for next week. This is a necessary step for any legislation presented to the Parliament. This means it is going ahead. Now is the time to SPEAK UP if you don't want this restrictive, horrible American-style DMCA in Canada. Please, contact your M.P. via email."

Better yet, participate in tomorrow's coordinated campaign to reach out to the elusive Industry Minister Jim Prentice, who is responsible for this legislation. This is especially important if you live in Calgary: we need people who care about this issue to attend the Minister's open house and ask him some of the 250+ questions that CBC listeners have for him, which he has so far refused to address.


(Thanks, Deb!)
