Why Politics and Creative Media Should Not Mix...

An issue that is dear to me is any effort by the government (any - US, Canada, UK... there's no difference) to poison the creative process and creative media with ridiculous control. I strongly believe in Copyright, Intellectual Property, and Creative Licencing. However, without exception, all the current political efforts are all harmful to everyone. For example, if Bill C-61 [Canada] passes, every single Canadian citizen, regardless of where they stand (artist/designer/media or consumers), will feel the repercussion of a Bill that is harmful to the very issue it's supposed to support or protect.

Here are some links to make you sick about the current reality.
Wherever you are in the world, speak out to your government about your concern. Help them understand the reality.
