Copyright bill details released

by Paul Jay, CBCNews.ca

The federal government finally introduced its copyright reform amendments in the House of Commons Thursday, and while the bill isn't yet online, the government released a series of >fact sheets outlining what the new changes will be. We're working hard to digest what it all means and will be updating our story in the CBCnews.ca Technology section as the day progresses and gauging reaction.

Update: The bill is here. Also, University of Ottawa professor Michael Geist, a frequent critic of the government's efforts at copyright reform, has posted his reaction. Be warned, though - in a measure of the level of interest in this issue - Geist's blog is slow because of heavy traffic.
