Today I finally had a chance to wade my way through 2 weeks of email. One message contained the URL to a press release containing information about the proposed changes to the Canadian Copyright Act. While of specific interest to Canadians, it is also well worth a read by anyone concerned with technology and their rights. Similar actions have already occured or are occuring elsewhere on the globe.

The same page also provides useful links, a glossary of copyright jargon and a link to a search engine to find your local member of parliament.

Russell McOrmond was involved in the creation of the petition. His site contains a wealth of information regarding FOSS and copyright legislation.

I also discovered today that the transcripts for the proceedings for the Canadian Senate and House of Commons are available online.

That's it for now. Back to my inbox.
