Welcome to the website of the Creators' Copyright Coalition. We at the CCC are committed to access to our creative works just as we are committed to copyright: we work for copyright legislation that ensures both. Here on our op-ed pages we will be posting opinion, commentary, links, and news of interest to creators and others engaged in copyright reform. Elsewhere, you'll find our archive of studies, handbooks and press releases. And while we're not currently hosting a discussion forum, comments sent to us may be posted or noted here (unless you ask us not to).

It begins again… or not

By Op-Ed Editor | December 10, 2007

A new copyright bill is to be introduced in the House of Commons sometime after 3 pm today.

Sometime after 3.01 pm Michael Geist will announce in seventeen different media that the bill is a carbon copy of the American DMCA legislation of some years ago. Then everyone will sit down to read and digest the bill.

Update: And then, um, it did not appear. Rumours that Industry Minister was intimidated by protesters outside his home on the weekend…! Mobs of enraged copyright pirates rampaging through the streets on the strength of a rumour….?
