A sick joke, right?

The CBC would like us (apparently everyone, including lowly bloggers) to pay to "license" content we (in Canada) already paid for?

There are a variety of reactions I have to this, but they all involve profanity and anatomically questionable imprecations.

There's more to it than that. The CBC licence would violate CANADIAN copyright law. Canadians won't permit any media organization, public or private, to import US law into Canada, right? At least this Canadian will fight it.

Fair dealing laws apply in Canada. CBC and the company they hired are pulling the same stunt that the AP did in the US.

Didn't work either. LOL.

I don't see the need for anyone to panic. It is a good opportunity to see if teh person who hired these buffoons gets well known for this major gaffe though. Maybe fired....
