The Canada’s upcoming copyright bill has been discussed for a while now. Many observers looked at the reform to great detail and criticized some of the provisions. Now it’s turn of the ministers responsible for the copyright reform to make an attack against people reading the law and talking about the provisions. The words mentioned in that attacks were “extremists not believing in copyright”.
The reports on the minister James Moore’s calling analysts of copyright legislation “extremists” have emerged long ago, but Moore kept denying such accusations. That was until an unnamed video emerged, confirming the earlier statements. What Moore said on the video was about people who, he believed, were just pretending to stand up for copyright reform, while not trusting in real reform. He also said that the so-called “experts” are undoubtedly not in favor of copyright reform, but they only encourage the weakening legislation. That’s the people, he thinks, who are “given far too much voice”.
They were many sources talking in general about some provisions that made Moore change his tone so quickly. Earlier, when some reports of the upcoming legislation only started circulating, lots of sources had a couple of criticisms to the government. That time the MP went wild at one of the critics and insisted that citizens have to wait until the bill passes judgment. Well, here we go, the legislation has already been tabled and that’s the exact time Moore wanted for us to read the legislation. But it keeps going on – Moore treats people by labeling them “extremists” just for reading the law. It’s not quite clear what he’s sad about. That people can read at all?
Moore probably needs to understand that Canadian citizens are not just looking for flaws and reasons to rebel against this law. Instead, they are trying to understand what kind of digital future is waiting fir them and their kids by simply scrutinizing the text of the legislation. Of course, they voice opinions and concerns, but that’s just how any normal person reacts in this life. Most of the observers, by the way, begin discussion with reminding readers that they are not providing any legal advice. Actually, all the people want government to understand is that the copyright legislation needs to be updated. Wasn’t it the point of public consultations?
Anyway, aside from any disputes, some of the MPs should remember that people will judge them accordingly to their statements.
