Challenging assumptions in education : from institutionalized education to...

Monday, 20 October, 2014

@TitleOur education system was designed to fight and win political and economic wars. We needed people to build bombs, radar and airplanes. We now have different problems, which require different types of solutions. Our present technologies are not sustainable. We need to figure out how to reverse climate change, feed the world’s population and preserve the planet’s clean water supplies. We need to drastically reduce our use of fossil fuels by developing renewable energy technologies. We need to change our waste management procedures, before we bury ourselves in both consumer and toxic waste. And more. The problems are so big that in order to fix them, we need to find new ways of working together rather than fighting with each other.

Michael Geist: The Government’s Political Advertising Copyright Exception: Fine Print Shows Proposal Privileges Politicians’ Speech Rights Over the Public

Monday, October 20, 2014

Last night I posted on reports that the Canadian government is considering a new copyright exception for political advertising.  While many have been harshly critical of the plans, I’ve noted that political speech is critically important and that copyright law should not be used to stifle it.  My post argues that the law may already cover some of the uses and that if changes are needed, a better approach would be to adopt a fair use provision in Canada.
