From the time we are born, our language development is based on copying . When we learn and discover, it's out inherent nature to share with others. This is how we have learned, and this is how we have advanced as a society.
By the creation of walled gardens around intellectual and creative works create barriers to our species intellectual development. The walled garden concept has been used throughout our history to control and limit access to information vital to where we were and who we have become.
As Canadians, we have fought hard for our acquired identities that distinguish our selves from the politics and cultures of other countries, the United States and Great Brittan in particular. Our choices in how we use and share copy right materials should be defined by our values culturally and intellectually alone without this foreign interference and their political agendas.
Our society has believed in free access to acceptable use of intellectual property with the appropriate compensation to these stake holders. We like to make personal copies for ourselves that is freely shared between friends and family. members. We like to use hardware that time shifts and records on any device, copies for convenience and personal use. We want access to our culture without the walled garden approach of foreign influences that interfere and dictate what is our sovereignty.
These are the personal and political rights that allow us to grow as a distinct Canadian society as apposed to the views of the foreign interests. We are Canadians, and we copy from one another, freely sharing our identity,our hopes and our dreams. That is what we've alway been and this is what we are.
