CBC Covers Copyright

CBC's The National will focus on the copyright concerns raised by the Canadian DMCA on tonight's show, while I'll be on The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos on Wednesday night to discuss the issue.


  1. I think it’s great that CBC covered the movement for better copyright legislation, but I am disappointed that they did not touch on how the legislation might affect people. While being a nice overview of what people are doing, it failed to mention many of the issues that have people caring in the first place. I believe the closest it came was a brief mention that the DMCA has led to lawsuits in the US.

    Here is hoping that the coverage on The Hour will be a little more in depth.

  2. The link you give for The Hour says that you will be on the show on Thursday, not Wednesday. Which is it?

  3. Michael Geist says:

    Wednesday. CBC has corrected the error.
