I would like to attend the round table meeting. When and where is it located? As to the questions posted on your site, see below:
How do Canada's copyright laws affect you? How should existing laws be modernized?
The laws impact me as an instructor for Red River College. I believe they should be modernized with a mind to the copyright legislation we already have in Canada.
Based on Canadian values and interests, how should copyright changes be made in order to withstand the test of time
Within a context of Canadian values and interests, I believe the copyright changes should reflect accountability and not restriction. Make allowances for tracking copyright violators without infringing on an individual's fair use.
What sorts of copyright changes do you believe would best foster innovation and creativity in Canada?
Watermarking content, not punitive damage for fair use copying.
What sorts of copyright changes do you believe would best foster competition and investment in Canada?
Come up with an industry leading, fair use technology. This might be of interest in other countries (with the exception of the USA)
What kinds of changes would best position Canada as a leader in the global, digital economy?
That's asking a lot of any solution. I think Canada's interests and existing fair use considerations should take priority over global concerns, or even continental concerns.
