Canadian Music Creators Coalition: A New Voice

Canadian Music Creators Coalition: A New Voice Paper

We are a growing coalition of Canadian music creators who share the common goal of having our voices heard about the laws and policies that affect our livelihoods. We are the people who actually create Canadian music. Without us, there would be no music for copyright laws to protect.
Until now, a group of multinational record labels has done most of the talking about what Canadian artists need out of copyright. Record companies and music publishers are not our enemies, but let’s be clear: lobbyists for major labels are looking out for their shareholders, and seldom speak for Canadian artists. Legislative proposals that would facilitate lawsuits against our fans or increase the labels’ control over the enjoyment of music are made not in our names, but on behalf of the labels’ foreign parent companies.
It is the government’s responsibility to protect Canadian artists from exploitation. This requires a firm commitment to programs that support Canadian music talent, and a fresh approach to copyright law reform. Canadian music creators have identified three principles that should guide the copyright reform process.

1. Suing Our Fans is Destructive and Hypocritical eusa_clap

2. Digital Locks are Risky and Counterproductive eusa_clap
  デジタル・ロック(DRM とかの事だと思います)はリスキーで逆効果である。

3. Cultural Policy Should Support Actual Canadian Artists eusa_clap
3つの原理の中身もまだ有るんですが、原文の方を見て下さい。 ちょっと、疲れた・・・


Good luck! thumbsup
