Influence Peddling is Killing Music (in Parkdale)


Canadian readers may already have read this story, but it's worth mentioning that, in an electoral riding (um, that's Canuckistanian for "district") just down the road from me, Parkdale-High Park, file sharing has emerged as a campaign issue. More specifically, music-industry campaign donations intended to encourage Liberal canadidate and potential future Heritage Minister, Sarmite Sam Bultes, to push for legislation that would make U.S.-RIAA-style lawsuits against downloading miscreants possible in Canada. Because there are Canadian grandmas, single moms, 12-year-old girls and dead people out there getting away with murder, presuming that "murder" means getting digital copies of Sum 41 songs. As Boing Boing noted today, local musician and net-label entrepreneur Neil Leyton (pictured above) is speaking out on the issue (as he's actually been doing for quite some time).

Ah, sweet copyright: Which will be the first country invaded and occupied to safeguard a small combine of multinational corporations' control of the human wellspring of ideas?

Hey that's my old hood. Didn't Mr. Mayor run in that riding? Sam is a real piece of work...kind of reminds me of my old gym teacher Pat O'Brien who's one of her Brothers in Arms on several issues. I say we invade New York first to defend the people of Canada from bootleggers.

Nice post. This is actually in my riding and I was already going to vote for Nash, but this'll make her victory all the sweeter.

Great post, Carl, glad to see you're keeping up with this issue. I think your perspective as a writer, as someone long associated with all kinds of music makers and producers, and as a part of the industry (and the non-industrial parts of the music biz as well) is pretty important.

Plus I still remember when they tried to get all the freelancers to sign new contracts away back when.
