Slashdot reports that Captain Copyright is dead. Gratz to the Canadian Library Association for their success in curtailing this initiative. In my mind it goes to prove that library associations and library's do have a role in the protection of our rights and heritage, and do serve a fundamental public good.
In other copyright related news, the Canadian Private Copyright Collective is asking for yet another levy, this time on portable music players as well as on memory cards. Fine... as long as the levy implies that we can copy content around freely... I'm not entirely against it. Well, not really... but I'd probably live with it.
If it means that I have to pay a levy and I'm still not supposed to copy music and videos around, then I have a problem.
