A busy couple of weeks (including the ever-eventful Banff World Television and nextMEDIA extravaganza) has meant that the Signal has fallen behind in keeping track of the commentary occasioned by the release of Bill C-32 (The Copyright Modernization Act). That being said, here are links to items we thought worth drawing attention to from the last ten days:
- James Gannon provides some thoughts (complete with visual aids) about User Exceptions and Digital Locks
- Mihály Ficsor, writing at Barry Sookman’s blog offers what can be described as a startlingly detailed analysis about the 1996 WIPO Treaties in light of certain comments on Bill C-32
- Michael Geist proposes Proposed Amendments to the Digital Lock Provisions of Bill C-32
- in an exciting battle of the catchy and on-topic taglines, Michael Geist (him again) offers 32 Questions and Answers on Bill C-32, while James Gannon (him again, too) parries with 32 Exceptions in Bill C-32
- Steven Zuccarelli, writing at IPilogue, ruminates on the notion of the bill’s digital lock provisions Acting as the Fulcrum between Owners’ and Users’ Rights
As a reminder, here at the Signal we’re going to do our best over the next few months to keep tabs on developments and commentary, from a variety of perspectives, surrounding Bill C-32, so we invite readers to check back often (clicking the “Bill C-32” tag below will bring you to an index of all posts on the Signal about the topic).
