I just this great comic on Boing Boing. It does an amazing job of explaining the controversy surrounding the Conservatives’ on-again-off-again copyright amendment legislation, and provides a ton of links to great opinion pieces (including this great blog post from Howard Knopf, mentioning that if anyone is beholden to the US, it’s Israel, and they’ve managed to move away from DCMA-style legislation, why can’t we?), new sources, and ways that you can take action. Lots and lots and lots of really good information/background.
Two great sources for actions you can take:
- Fair Copyright for Canada (Join the Facebook group)
- Michael Geist has a list of 37 things you can do RIGHT NOW
I’ve sent emails to most of the people on Michael Geist’s lists, but need to follow up with some real paper letters. Been a LONG time since I bothered sending one of those.
