Angus Issues Three-Step Approach for Effective Copyright Reform

NDP MP Charlie Angus has issued a "three-step approach" for effective copyright legislation.  Angus rightly emphasizes the need for further consultation:

1.      Live up to the government's commitment to bring the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) treaty to the House of Commons for a vote before introducing new legislation;

2.      Ensure adequate consultation prior to introducing news legislation between Parliamentarians with affected stakeholder groups including arts/artist groups, educators, software innovators, consumer groups and everyday Canadians;

3.      Ensure new legislation addresses the reality of technological innovation so that artistic creators can be fairly compensated in a rapidly changing paradigm of information transmission and storage.
