Canadians against Bill C-11 The Copyright Modernization Act sign now

Do you want to be labelled a criminal for copying songs off a CD that you have purchased onto your iPod? With the aforementioned bill, you will be...

The current Canadian government wants to pass Bill C-11 (of the formerly defunct Bill C-32) under the guise of modernization of our current copyright laws. What this bill fails to do is keep any modern consumer in mind.

With the current language of the bill regarding "digital locks" or DRM to many of you, the passing of the bill label most of you criminals.

Potential criminals? With severe fines? for the following actions that many of the current generation of computer literate consumers do:
- Copying a song off a CD that you have purchased to your iPod or cell phone to listen to on your commute to work?
- Copying a movie off a DVD or Blu-Ray that you have purchased to your cellphone or tablet to watch while waiting in line at the cash register?
- Copying a CD, DVD or Blu-Ray disc that you have purchased in order to prevent your young children from scratching the original disc? (something I'm sure that has happen to many a parent including this one)

Do these actions sound criminal to you?

In our current economic climate, do most of us have so much disposable income that we can purchase the same song over and over again? In different formats so that we can listen to it in our car, iPod, cell phone, computer, and home stereo?

Copyright modernization need to keep the modern consumer in mind, and need to include fair use and common sense.
