GO DARK – STOP SOPA

Today this site joins thousands of websites in going dark to protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act.  While SOPA is proposed U.S. legislation, it has implications for all Canadians, including provisions that treat all Canadian IP addresses as if they were subject to U.S. jurisdiction.

Moreover, Canada faces the same relentless copyright lobbying campaign. From the much-criticized digital lock rules found in Bill C-11 to the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement to the proposal to extend the term of copyright protection in the Trans Pacific Partnership, Canadian copyright policy is increasingly shaped by the same groups promoting SOPA.

Patch Day

I don’t like the fact that this default Uncategorized page under Categories, if nothing’s posted, would generate a “Sorry” page.

This is a patch post. In IT, this is called a workaround. 😀 Please visit other posts – enjoy them.
