Want to keep a Canadian advantage?

In Canada, copyright lasts for the life of the creator plus 50 years. That’s the international standard. But the U.S. and the E.U. made a little boo boo and extended theirs by 20 years, impoverishing their public domains. So they want Canada to extend our copyright terms to match theirs, even though it’s not in our interest. The Harper government will probably do it.

YOU can write and tell them not to. Here’s the address.

They say they’re listening until Feb.14th.
