Pirate Snit: It's About the Internet, Stupid

piratedvd.jpg

Hollywood lobbyists are apparently gaining ground in their campaign to use trumped-up stories about rampant Canadian DVD piracy to force Canadian copyright reform. The real goal, it seems blatant, is to pressure us to fall into lockstep with the U.S. copy-law regime, despite the evident fact that Canadians collectively have a different set of values around intellectual property, just as we do around health care. Don't let the flashy sideshow of a couple thousand shitty camcordered DVDs distract you, or your Member of Parliament, from the larger principle.

(And just when another patch of the landscape was improving...)
