Hello I would like to see a fair copyright reform that addresses the right of consumers as equal to those of corporate interests. I do not want to see an American style DMCA enacted here in Canada. Consumers should have the right to make backup copies of media they purchase. There should be definate timelines on when intellectual property becomes public domain and not rolling extensions on copyright. We are already paying a tax on blank media to compensate copyright losses. What is to become of that? I would only like to see minor fines for copyright infringement and not the ridiculous amounts awarded againist some teen downloading music on the internet. Please create a balance act that protects consumers and citizens
