Speak now or forever hold your peace

I have already blogged about the fact that the Canadian government is consulting on copyright reform (finally). What isn't public knowledge yet is that you can have your say. Not in person, but online at least. You simply go to this site and register, then let your opinion fly. This is important for Canadians because you can bet special interest groups will be all over this opportunity like white on rice. Who is going to speak on behalf of your rights?

If you need to inform yourself first, Michael Geist has launched the fantastic The site features dozens of posts and videos on Canadian copyright law, the Twitter #copycon stream, information on Bill C-61, and a Take Action page that highlights many of the ways individual Canadians can speak out on copyright.
