the laws must prepare for a complete internet transformation. expect the internet to overtake telephony, television, video on demand services, radio, satellite radio, movie rentals and music shops. all of those services will be completely replaced with online equivalents soon enough. digital rights management (drm) and intrusion of privacy is not the answer. if we must resort to that, we are preventing the internet from becoming the preferred medium in canada and we will fall behind. creativity existed long before any copyright laws. art can't die.
i think flexibility is important. we should stop using permanent ink and move to a digital, reversible and flexible format. we shouldn't have to guess what tomorrow will bring, but fit the laws according to the current situation and make it possible to adjust them at any moment. twenty years ago the internet was a small experiment, now we are scrambling to repair our laws because we thought the ones from decades ago we be relevant forever- without mention of the internet.
in school, there is too much emphasis on creative writing and not enough on interactive, video and audio production. younger people choose to speak, listen and watch rather than write. with modern technology it is easier to do such. it explains the popularity of video sharing sites like youtube among the young. if we promoted this in schools instead of prohibit it, i think more would grow up with an interest in film making and producing. it is sad to see public schools use binders and pencils only to send kids home to autocorrecting word processors and group video chat.
making sure artists with contracts get their fair share and that none of their work is redistributed for financial gain without their permission. increase funding for arts especially for students and promote modern artistic media, mainly online.
funding and promoting the internet so that every canadian adopts its use. schools must stop punishing students for using online resources and mobile devices. there is this paradox in canadian schools where the students are far more familiar and informed than the teachers in terms of the greatest learning and creative tool ever crafted (the internet).
just as governments funds national security, roads and water services, it must increase funds for internet access and arts. if we want others to be inspired and have people around the world see canadian content, we must make the internet infrastructure ready for the future. our internet service providers have no interest in promoting creativity and will do the bare minimum when possible. canada is almost dead last in ranking of price/speed and availability of the internet. we must fund fiber optic and satellite services because it is what allows people to share content and be creative in today's world.
