Will Canada Salute the Broadcast Flag?

Professor Geist's latest Toronto Star Law Bytes column (Toronto Star version, HTML backup article, homepage version) assesses recent comments from an Industry Canada official that Canada is likely to move quickly to import the broadcast flag by July 2005. The column argues that it is essential that Canada craft its own policy by considering the privacy and copyright policies associated with the proposal. Pre-judging the issue is a dangerous course of action and one that should be replaced immediately by a working group consisting of all stakeholders, including the broader public interest.
