Bulte Petition

If your disgusted, or even just very disapointed, with the whole Bulte story, it would be a very good idea to sign the petition asking all candidates to sign the Copyright Pledge.

This is just one example of how coziness between MPs and the industries they regulate can create practical and ethical problems. Even if Bulte’s aggressive stance on copyright didn’t evolve because of the large campaign donations that she has received from copyright holders, that relationship compromises her independence. That’s why OnlineRights.ca agrees with Professor Michael Geist’s call for all politicians intent on participating in Canadian copyright policy deliberations – regardless of party – to take the “Copyright Pledge.”
