Vous etes surement très intelligent.Vous êtes en plus canadien, donc vous vous exprimez dans les deux langues..si Harper est capable ..vous aussi..
Que voulez passer comme message exactement? C'est quoi votre but?
Avez vous des enfants?, Des cousins/cousines/ de la famille qui ..pourrait illégalement telecharger des chansons ?
Nous savons tous aujourd'hui que les jeunes veulent etre dans le showbizz..etre des *stars*..Etre sur les front page de tous les magazines "people"

alors ces jeunes qui ecrivent et qui un jour ..entre le temps d'etre reconnus..ecrivent de superbes chansons..avant qu'ils puissent etre des Avril Lavigne avec des contrats de millions..
Ils vivent de quoi? ..si leurs chansons sont copiées..illégalement( il va s'en dire )..De coca cola, poutine et frites?
Faut etre realiste..et si c'était votre fils ou votre fille..qui bosse fort a la maison? Dont vous et votre femme travaillez tres fort pour payer des cours, qui eux demandent juste a être payer!!..
Ces teachers..! Normal.
Et vous etes fiers du résultat..Se faire piquer "gratuitement" leurs droits..cela vous accepteriez???
Vous etes parents légitimes ou pas?
Vous avez ce droit moral de vos enfants ou ce sont des clones?
The one that does not have the recotrd royalties, the performance royalties, the repd
Faut mettre les valeurs de tous et chacuns en perspective..Ne croyez vous pas a cela.??

Demain , vous qui avez une notoriété..vous bossez a combien de l'heure? 50-75-150-300- $$ de l'heure?
Et si je me servais gratuitement de vos ecrits sur des sites ..vous seriez content de cela.
Vous avez surement assez de $$ pour dire.."WHO CARES".I MADE IT...et vos enfants..OK ils seront comblés de $$$
mais les autres..ceux qui ecrivent , qui n'ont pas ce talent d'etre des stars comme les Celine Dion ou j'aurais une liste..Ils font quoi pour vivre , meme survivre?
What about the writer that does not perform..but because of his talent..cerated hit songs..that the singer cashes in millions, the manager takes it's %, the musicians, the producer
On stage..you can't copy..but for the rest..who cares..tale all what you can..They say and we have often heard..THE POOR WRITER..
with what you are suggesting..COPY All you can..FREE FREE..
And if your child had the real talent of a songwriter.,but not a performer..And all his songs were hits..free downloaded hit songs..i guess you would be complaining ( ecentually ) that
you would be paying for the rent..somewhere.
I am just curious to really know what you really want to prove.
I am even ready to travel to whatever to just discuss this ..I am just sad to see that you are just looking on the side of the "commercial" bid players..
C'est la vie..et c,est triste

Ils se font piquer lers chansons....gratuitement..le performer..pas grave..DOWNLOAD the MAX..who cares..the stage will be full..But what about the writers???
Arretez d'etre ce dictateur..Vous etes surement tres bien rénuméré par les grands joueurs commerciaux..et si du jour au lendemain..vous le feriez pour les VRAIS ayants droits, les createurs..mais bénévolement..LE FERIEZ VOUS?

Et vos enfants..vous les situez ou dans ce monde..On vole leurs droits..ou pas grave papa va te payer ta porsche!!

Hi,
I'm just someone who reads Michael's blog like you. I have 2 children learning musical instruments and I also buy and listen to a lot of music.
This new proposed law will do nothing new to protect the rights of artists. There are very few artists who have spoken out in favour of the new law and many who have expressed concerns.
This law is what the American music industry demanded that their government extract from our government in return for a few trade concessions.
It has nothing to do with the hard-working entrepreneurial artist and everything to do with extending the grasp of capitalists and lawyers into every niche of our lives.
I expect you have taped a tv show and kept it in case you'd watch it again. Criminal.
Read all the other things you consider normal that will be outlawed and then say whether you can support Bill C-61

C'est quoi le point que vous cherchiez a apporter ?

Connaisez-vous Jamendo ? Il y a plein de moyen de se faire connaitre. De plus des tudes on prouver que le piratage augmentais les ventes de CD. Vous dites que les jeunes veulents etre des 'stars' aujourd'hui .. Avez vous des sources pour de telles affirmation ? Si vous voulez passer au srieux commencer a apprendre a 驩crire dans un francaos lisible et comprensible.

Je vous cite : On vole leurs droits..ou pas grave papa va te payer ta porsche!!

C'est tellement stupide comme affirmation, les droits des artistes sont tres bien protger au Canada. En fait prenner le temp de lire la loi actuel qui protege les auteurs : [ link ]

Ils n'ont pas assez d'argent pour la retraite, donc on va allonger le copyright a 90 ans????

Pourquoi n'ont ils pas appris a epargner pour la retraite, comme tout le monde??? REER et les regimes similaires sont pour tous.

C'est ca qui pousse les gens a ignorer le copyright completement.

10 ans de copyright, c'est assez pour stimuler la creativite!

Ce n'est pas le theme de telechargement gratuit, mais la liberte d'expression qui est menacee par la nouvelle loi.

I r a criminal?
So if i bypass a drm(No cd crack) on one of the games i payed for and have the right play without a damn CD wearing out my cd rom and the disc, which i will need if i ever need to reinstall it or install it at a friends house or new PC? I should have to fear a 200k fine because some old people in parliament have no clue about how a pc or software even work?

Based on how knowledgeable that french lady and prentice where on the subject, i would guess that the MPs that support this bill are the kind of people that have to get their kids to open their emails... Or do anything with a PC.

It will sure be funny when one of the MPs ends up on the hook for copyright violations their kids or someone for downloading stuff on their PCs(or having open wireless). But hey they don't have to work all that hard, so i guess they can just sit around and monitor their kids every move online forever.
Or they could not be r-tards and let the bill pass.

jail them all attitude and fine the hell
Harper criminalizing everything can be reference to a lot of bills

C-2
C-26
c-51
and last but not least c-61

Seems like its a punish them all and create excessive punishment and jail sentences mandatory minimums etc.Then on top of that excessive fines as well

There are totally of of touch with what Canadians want because the do not care what we want.

They take there marching orders from another source not the people they govern. What do we need to do for Harper and Co to listen to the public
Touches and pitch forks ????
The madness has to stop !!!
