Are you a copyright criminal?

Hereà ¢Ã¢”š ¬Ã¢”ž ¢s some of the proposed penalties included in Bill C-61, the bill that contains proposed changes to Canadian copyright law:

  • $500 per downloaded song
  • No Fair Use rights for remix culture
  • $20,000 for uploading content (like on Youtube)

If you too are a copyright criminal take your picture with this photo plate and upload it to the Open Source Cinema site. You could also include the photo with a letter to your MP saying this bill sucks.
