Are Canadians too apathetic to have nice things? Our politicians, as bought and paid for as every other nation’s, are trying to screw innocent citizens by providing corporations with the same kind of powers that have led to abuse and presumption of guilt in the US. Megauploads was a piracy site, no question, but that did not give Universal the right to issue fraudulent take-down notices to Youtube. There were no repercussions, so why not? Do you want the government to remove the presumption of innocence and provide corporations with the power to shut you down if they donâ€™t like what you are saying? If not, do something about it. Frankly, this is about the least that you can do, but if you canâ€™t be bothered to protect our internet by calling or writing a pen and paper letter to your MP and the relevant ministers, at least do this.
