CRTC and the internet – public meetings underway!

February 18, 2009 at 3:17 am Leave a comment

The CRTC’s investigation into new media, internet and possible regulations is underway. Right now they are involved with public meetings to find out what the stakeholders are looking for. The stakeholders are content producers, large broadcasters, tele-comms, actors and us – the citizens of this country who will benefit from any and all regulations. Yes, I said that with a straight face . . . no need for sarcasm.

Since these consultations will have an effect on what you can watch on the internet in the future, you may want to check out the following resources and get involved.

Here are some resources:

Dr. Ira Wagman of the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University

Dr. Michael Geist is a law professor at the University of Ottawa
