Here is an MP3 recording (45Mb) (speex format ~ 9Mb) of a discussion with with Russell McOrmond (Flora.ca) organised by Maxime Piché and held at StudioXX in Montreal, Quebec. The topic is Intellectual Property & Government with a focus on the canadian contexts surrounding:
- patent and copyright law
- "software in governments"
- "claim and censor"
- "code as law"
- open source software and intellectual property law
- voting machine software
- and much more.
A few other things that were commented about:
- Toronto Penguin Day
- Creative commons
- promoting cooperation between English and French Canada on these issues.
- the SCO case
You'll have to excuse the sounds of the hard drive spinning up every once in a while in the recorder I'm using.
