Minister Clement gives me great hope that we'll have a much better copyright bill brought before parliament.
I was able to talk to him at some length on the issue Friday morning, and he is a much more able, and much more savvy minister than Prentice was when it comes to this technologically (and socio-economocially) sensitive bill.
My hopes are high, and I look forward to being “one of the people” he talks to about this issue!
Just a suggestion – you should invest in a 'shotgun' mike or something similar for your camcorder. It was kind of hard to hear what Tony was saying, and a shotgun mike will pick up the sound in front of the camera more loudly than your own.
BTW, next time you run into Tony, ask if he's played 'Diplomacy' lately
Thanks a lot for conducting the interview as I am fairly interested in hearing Minister Clement's take on copyright reform.
P.S. I agree with Jennifer that a “shotgun” mic will give you much better sound quality.
Agreed! Irony is that I have two.
Let's hope Jim Prentice's draconian copyright legislation literally gets “lost in the shuffle”.
