I'm traveling a lot this month speaking about Canadian copyright, culture, and the Internet. The focus of some of my talks is on how Canada need not follow the U.S. example on copyright policy. Rather, it should make its own choices on these issues by adopting forward-looking policies based on what is actually happening online, rather than the doomsday scenarios promoted by some industries struggling to keep pace with rapid change.
One such talk occurred last month in Edmonton at the Access 2005 conference. The organizers have posted an MP3 version of the talk no powerpoint slides that accompanied the talk but feel free to download and have a listen.
