April Meeting

It’s that time again…

Welcome to April. We are having a meeting this Thursday, April 21 at the Altera Technology Center as usual. It seems that none of the prior topics have panned out as expected, so this month, something that might be of broader interest: digital copyright law. There are a number of things that can be discussed, one of which is the potential Canadian modification of the copyright laws and allowing for serious privacy infringements. The current minister of heritage is bowing to pressure from the CRIA and these changes could appear as soon as June this year. This is not the first time that this has raised it’s head, and it may not be the last.
