There's been a lot of discussion (and by that I mean hysterical blogging) about a proposed new copyright law in Canada, Bill C-61.
Basically it says that because so many people ignored copyright laws, new DVDs will be sold with copy protection so that if you buy one, you can't download it to your own iPod. You'll have to buy a second version for that.
Oh, of course it says a lot more and people are trying to twist it all kinds of ways, and it has brought the whole concept of copyright into question by some people, most notably a couple of University of Ottawa professors. It gets complicated, what with so many people voluntarily giving away their writing online and claiming there's a difference between the "text" and the "book" (which may be true for them, but not for everyone).
My guess is most people here like the idea of copyright. One of my favourite quotes in this debate is:
"Creators need access to the works of others to create. Legislative changes premised on the “need” to give copyright owners more control over their works must be rejected."
Almost makes it sound like it's in our best interest to give up copyright of our work.
They call it "Appropriation Art" and have some slick websites:
Anyway, this is mostly Canadian right now (they claim the problem is American companies wanting too much control of Canadian laws - like I said, it gets complicated and into many different issues), so some people here might be interested.
