In recent days, there have been mounting calls for the creation of copyright inquiry or Royal Commission to sort out the copyright file. Christopher Moore, John Degen, Howard Knopf, Julianna Yau, and Russell McOrmond have all joined the call (to varying degrees), while Yau has established a Facebook group to promote a copyright public inquiry. I believe these calls are entirely consistent with my suggestion that Industry Minister Jim Prentice use the current copyright delay to consult more broadly. One of the consistent themes from the hundreds of comments posted over the past few weeks is the sense that Canadians feel that they have not had their say on copyright. Whether it is called a Royal Commission, a public inquiry, an expert advisory panel, or a public consultation there is a need to engage in a national consultation about copyright in Canada before introducing any further copyright legislation.
