Copyright is "most lobbied area"

[Ad box removed; this image serves to flag pages that need to be updated in my log file.]

I spotted this item in "Vive le Canada":  Simon Doyle has self-published a book called Prey to Thievery on Lulu (the same place I posted one of mine), covering in considerable detail the CRIA's lobbying efforts.  Sheila Copps is quoted describing the 1997 copyright bill as "the single-most lobbied bill in the history of Parliament." At over US$13 for the download alone, I don't think I'll be buying a copy of the book myself, but there's an excerpt in The Hill Times which is certainly worth reading.  The book is under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives.
