Author Sues Booksellers for Selling His Books
From 6/17/2008 - Publishers Weekly

This is what real copyright laws should remain focused on: the professional distributor who infringes the publisher's and the author's rights.


We are not supposed to be the problem in "copyright law" as we have rights otherwise under Constitutional law to protect us and in some cases, damn us, with no protection.

In my opinion, what the Harper government is doing to the Copyright Act of Canada should be done in a commercial law via a statute outside of copyright law, that specifically overrides the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, using the notwithstanding clause.

Till then, freedom of expression rules.
