As a small artist I am CERTAIN that copyright laws really only protect the HUGE big companies Images & Sound created by small organizations or individuals have little or no chance of being compensated by breaches and levies on Blank media therefore I think copyright protection is a Scam as far as Blank hard drives and recording media is concerned
I have seen my stuff on others Videos and shows it is not realistic to try make a claim and if A person uses your footage and never pays you are not likely to ever see any payment unless you own a network or are a Big company this is Fact not fiction So if the small have no protection why should the Large??

Give us some freedom. The very few companies that run the entertainment make enough money and whine about losing a small percentage. We the consumers demand some freedom. We bought the good now let us do what we wish with limits of course. Limits that are well thought out, not the absurd limits of the Bill C-61. Let us share. Let us be free. Free commons is the way to go.

I agree ! The whole reason this "problem" started was because of restricted outdated business models and over priced options. Sell the people what they want at a reasonable price and all these "problems" will disapear!
