Angry all Canadians Please READ

i received this from open media today in a emal!

you can sign the petition here . please do so !!!!!

We really didnít want to send you another email so soon, but we know you count on us to alert you about major threats to Internet choice and affordability. So here it is...

According to copyright experts, giant media conglomerates are lobbying for Internet lockdown powers allowing them to cut Internet access for no good reason, remove or hide vast swaths of the Internet, and lock users out of their own services.

Taken together, these new powers would fundamentally change the Internet, severely limit free expression, and hogtie innovators. And all to supposedly protect Big Mediaís content assets.

We can convince the government to stand up to lobbyist pressure if we raise our voices together. Please send the government a message now.

A similar scheme in the US led to a huge public outcry forcing Big Media lobbyists to back off from their plan to impose the now-infamous SOPA and PIPA1 legislation.

Now, those lobbyists are turning to Canada through copyright legislation like Bill C-11 and trade agreements called ACTA2 and TPP3. Internet law expert Michael Geist recently revealed that behind-the-scenes Big Media lobbyists are pushing for powers such as website blocking4, Internet termination for people that threaten their business interests5, and huge threats for sites that host user-generated content (like YouTube)6, in addition to the ďmost restrictive digital lock provisions in the world,Ē7 which are already in Bill C-11.

Canadians are not taking this lying down. Across the country, online and off, Canadians are standing up against this Internet lockdown. Protests are being held in several cities today8; at the same time thousands of people are getting active online, using the Internet to say no to the Internet lockdown.

Letís do our part today ..and make the Internet scream.

Politicians and policymakers have an opportunity to put Canada on the map as a leader in Internet openness and affordability. But they have to know that weíre behind them if they stand up to megacorporate lobbyists. Their approach is backwards: it suffocates online choice and itís patently unfair.

Letís kick up some dust. Tell the Prime Minister and the Industry Minister to say no to the Internet lockdown.

For the Internet,

Steve, Lindsey, and your OpenMedia.ca Team

P.S. Thanks so much for standing up for your digital rights. Itís amazing to see Canadians, like our global counterparts, use the Internet to save the Internet.

Yep, I been in the thick of this fight too, trying to spread awareness. No one seems to care until it affects them, and then it will be too late. Canadian government goons are trying like hell to turn canada into another US lol....
