Canada placed on copyright blacklist

No news here. First Markham Place, Pacific Mall.
You can never win with free.

Globe and Mail April 30, 2009

The Obama administration added Canada Thursday to a notorious blacklist of countries where Internet piracy flourishes, reflecting a new, tougher line in Washington over the Harper government's chronic failure to deliver on promises of new copyright laws.

“Canada has never been put on the priority watch list before,” said Stanford McCoy, assistant U.S. trade representative for intellectual property and innovation as he released Washington's annual report or offenders.

Canada now joins a group of countries designated as being especially lax in protecting intellectual property, including Algeria, China, Russia, Pakistan, Indonesia and Venezuela. No other advanced Western democracy is on the list and Canada is regarded as a lawless hub for bootleg movies, ripped-off software and pirated chips that bypass copyright protections.

I hate dumb managers

Especially dumb managers who e-mail you with instructions to email others WHEN THEY CAN DO IT THEMSELVES!

“Hi Eddie, I see that you and I are copied on Wendy’s email. Can you send a reply to her and tell her to change the status to green? Thanks.”

“Okay boss.”
