Copyright and your vote

Based on the now dead Bill C-60, the Liberals support a more American style copyright law in Canada, at least in terms of owners' rights (and a lack of users' rights). Michael Geist has been covering the copyright positions of various parties and candidates on his blog. Here is an excerpt:

"Not to be overlooked by the Bulte issue is the fact that the major parties have provided some feedback into their views on copyright (many individual candidates have as well - those are posted at Digital-Copyright.ca). The Canadian Teachers Federation obtained responses from all parties on the education issue and access to publicly available materials on the Internet.  The Liberals confirmed their decision to shift away from the Bulte report by again committing to a consultation on the issue. The Conservatives and NDP took stronger pro-education stands."
