Free Culture Myth #1 - Only old, incumbent players advocate for strong copyright protection. The new generation doesn't bother with copyright.
Free Culture Myth #2 - Those advocating strong copyright protection just don't understand new technology.
Meet James Gannon, IP lawyer at the firm McCarthy Tétrault. He also has a degree in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo.
Gannon appeared before the Bill C-11 Committee of Parliament on Monday, February 27th, explaining how technological protection measures and strong copyright protection are enablers of a vibrant cultural economy for Canada.
Anyone made nervous or confused by the rampant free culture misinformation campaign against copyright protection in the cultural marketplace should visit the young, decidedly new-gen, tech-savvy Mr. Gannon's site and read his remarks before the committee.
Boom. That just happened.
