Canadian Copyright Consultations on Now

I don't want to be political or comment too much about what I think is right or wrong with the music business, but I think everyone agrees that copyright is a big part of the music business. It's a large part of how we enjoy (or can't enjoy) music in the Internet age.

In Canada, copyright consultations are now on and continue through September 13, 2009. It's important that those that have opinions on the subject share their opinions - that they are part of the process.

The Canadian government has created a web site to facilitate submission of opinion and dialog. Michael Geist who is a law professor at the University of Ottawa has a great blog page and has been posting regularly on the consultation content and process.
