Canadian Writers on Copyright

A new video presents five writers talking about the perils of Bill C-32, Canada’s controversial new copyright bill.┬áThe video features two-time Governor General’s Award winner Nino Ricci, and builds awareness on how Bill C-32 and the education exceptions will hurt Canadian writers’ ability to make a living. “Without strong copyright protections, professional writing in this country will be irreparably harmed,” says novelist Alan Cumyn and author of the video. “Thousands of authors and artists across the country have been writing their MPs, protesting parts of this bill. This video puts faces and voices to our concerns.” Also featured in the video are Canadian writers Erna Paris, Sandra Campbell, and Susan Swan.
