I’m back from summer holidays to remind you to submit your copyright consultation comments! And to let you know that Vancouver Fair Copyright Coalition has made a pretty awesome guide to participating in the online copyright consultations. Copyright Consultation Made Easy (pdf) appears to my eyes to be truly intelligible to “regular” people (which is to say, you need good literacy skills but not lots of tech skills or prior intelletcual property law knowledge).
No, it’s not comprehensive (no mention of crown copyright, for example, a topic that is one of my own pet peeves), but the simplicity is part of the beauty of the thing.
Check it out and pass it along!
And don’t forget to add your comments to the e-consultation before Sept 13! http://copyright.econsultation.ca/
