Artists revolt against CRIA policies

Artists revolt against CRIA [Canadian Recording Industry Association] policies
The Globe and Mail, publication date: 26 April 2006
"The group opposes demands of the recording industry for major changes in the Canadian Copyright Act. The former Liberal government had tabled an amendment to the act that was heavily influenced by demands from the recording industry.

The bill died on the order paper when the government fell, and the bill's champion, Liberal MP Sarmite Bulte, went down to defeat in the subsequent election amid accusations of catering to the CRIA."
