The Digital Revolution is Leaving Canada Behind

I do not blame the Hulus, Apples or Googles of the world. Our archaic public institutions and legal systems are to blame: The Government of Canada, the Copyright Board of Canada, the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), the Privacy Commissioner of Canada—all are complicit in holding up the dissemination of digital content and technology in many ways, both big and small. These public bodies, operating under ignorance-fueled ultra-conservatism and long-outdated ideas about borders, impose anachronistic rules, taxation, governance, oversight and regulation on the movement of content and technology that really should be flowing freely.
