Industry Minister Tony Clement has launched a public consultation on the subject of what Canada’s policies towards the Digital Economy should be. The consultation process includes a white paper, a set of skill testing questions, and a series of round tables. One of the topics is copyright, although the government has introduced a Copyright Bill already this month (which paid no attention to the public opinion gleaned from its public consultation process last summer). There is no mention of patents.
If you wish to make a submission, the deadline is July 9, 2010. There is also an “Idea Forum” where you may post your ideas and vote and comment on the ideas posted by others.
