I am going to add to my colleague's answer. People say they want an open Internet with massive sharing and maybe there will be dollar signs under all that. I am talking about artists' works. They also want to have a chance to grow.
Meanwhile, there is talk about chilling effects, intimidation, threats and costly litigation.
Where is the value of rights in all that, where is the value in that for creators, songwriters or publishers in music, and where is the technological neutrality? The Copyright Act is supposed to be neutral. That means that a right that was there before, in the old economy, must continue to exist in the new one.
In our brief, we have included the measures affecting consumers and non-commercial practices. But when we look at the commercial realm, we see an imbalance between the value for artists and the value, in terms of profit, for commercial industries that make money at the expense of the underlying copyright, as Mr. Lauzon said.
