| But that's the whole point about digital content: you *can* leave it out 
| in front of your virtual house, and allow people to take it, because you

| in front of a motor car because it goes too fast: it's *meant* to go fast.

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday I posted on how security guards outside the Toronto copyright town
| hall demanded that the Canadian Federation of Students and NDP MP Olivia Chow
| stop distributing flyers discussing their positions on copyright.  It turns
| out there is further fallout from the incident.  Chow was distributing a
| flyer that included NDP MP Charlie Angus' interview with Exclaim! on
| copyright along with "count on me to speak out against Bill C-61 and
| anti-circumvention rules. I support stronger fair dealing." The Angus
| interview includes comments on the need for forward looking laws, the failed
| DMC, and the need to ways to monetize online activities.
