Closing Canada's "Innovation Gap"
Michael Geist's most recent column on the copyright crisis in Canada kills two birds with one stone, explaining 1.) how current and pending copyright law and policy is threatening innovation, and 2.) what the Canadian government can do to stop it.
The piece dovetails nicely with the announcement last week of the Geneva Declaration on the Future of the World Intellectual Property Organization, which argues that WIPO should help nations do what Professor Geist proposes for Canada: adopt IP law and policy to foster innovation and help humanity rather than merely to promote international "harmony."
