From “Radical Extremism” to “Balanced Copyright”: Canadian Copyright and the Digital Agenda is a book written by Canadian copyright scholars, edited by Michael Geist, which discusses ways to improve Bill C-32. The book is available on the Irwin Law web site, but spread across 22 PDF files, each with a click-through agreement, making it quite inconvenient to download. I’ve compiled these 22 PDFs into an archive file so you can download the entire book at once. Here is the archive in several formats:
- canadian_copyright_and_the_digital_agenda.7z (6.7 MiB)
- canadian_copyright_and_the_digital_agenda.tar.lzma (6.7 MiB)
- canadian_copyright_and_the_digital_agenda.tar.gz (16.4 MiB)
- canadian_copyright_and_the_digital_agenda.zip (16.4 MiB)
You can use 7-Zip on Windows to open the 7z file. Modern UNIX-like operating systems, such as Ubuntu, can open the tar.gz and tar.lzma files natively. Any popular OS should be able to open the ZIP file natively, though it’s quite large so I’d recommend using the other options first if possible.
If you’d like to download a particular PDF individually, I’ve made the contents of the archive available at http://ossguy.com/ccda/. All the PDFs are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Canada license.
