Submission to Section 92 Copyright act review

This is a submission to House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage in relation to their section 92 review of the copyright act. Since the first announcement the date of submissions has been moved to October 17, 2003. For more information on copyright reform in Canada, please join the Digital Copyright Canada forum.

Please also see 2003 submission to on proposed amendments to the Competition Act. I also wrote a related article: Perspective of a digital copyright reformer on Sheila Copps, MP.

Note about software:

If you are looking for a reader for the PDF files, I maintain a list of PDF reading/authoring software.

The OASIS open office XML is a standard being set by the OASIS Open Office XML Format Technical Committee. The reference implementation is the OpenOffice.org office productivity suite which is Free/Libre and Open Source Software. If interested in the public policy implications of this software and FLOSS, please take a look at the slides I made for a Real World Linux 2003 presentation titled Office Suite Productivity in Government.
