Audio Podcast: Panel Discussion on Copyright and Bill C-61

Devin Johnston of the blog had a  podcast on Saturday afternoon to discuss the concerns some of us have with Bill C-61, the proposed bill to update copyright legislation in Canada.  The  group included myself, Mike Park of Rational Reasons, John Klein, who runs Abandoned Stuff by Saskboy, and a special guest, Dr. Sam Trosow, Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario, jointly appointed to the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Information and Media Studies,

We talked about our concerns of the impact of the Conservative government’s proposed Copyright legislation on creators and consumers of digital media. Devin’s blog has the podcast.

I’ll mention that we as guests sounds fine on the podcast,  but you may have to turn it up to listen to Devin’s questions, as he was having some problems on his end getting the audio to record his voice level. Hopefully with some better recording software for use with Skype, that problem should be rectified for his next podcast, which is probably next Saturday, and which I believe Devin will be attempting to hold once a week every Saturday afternoon.

If you’re interested in participating in a podcast, be it next weekend or whenever, give Devin an email at his address. He’s trying to fill the void left by Greg Staple’s departure from political blogging and podcasting, and it would be good for bloggers to show their support in his endeavour.

  • Jees, I should a held the tin can a little closer to my mouth eh? I sound terrible…

  • Hi Scott,

    Thanks again for being on the show and for all your efforts promoting the podcast and seeking out potential guests. I downloaded the recording program you recommended for the next time, and it seems to be working in the handful of test calls I’ve made.

    Have a good long weekend,
