Hi everyone,

I apologize for cross-postings.

Re. below, if you havenšt already seen this, it is for your reference. The
topic of copyright revision is now on the Feds agenda, but not very clear on
the public radar.

Those involved in Copyright Revision should also be aware of
http://digital-copyright.ca/ - they are attempting to provide updated
information on this and related areas of policy. It will all be coming to a
library near you:)

Cheers,
Leo
