People aren’t liking the looks of Bill C-61’s proposed copyright reforms apparently.

There’s a story at the CBC’s website about how the Fair Copyright For Canada Facebook group has had its membership surge since the introduction of Bill C-61, the Conservatives and Jim Prentice’s proposed Copyright Reform legislation. As of 6:20 pm last evening when the story was posted at the CBC’s website, membership had gone from 41 000 at the start of the week to 48 000 last evening. It’s gone up even further this morning: as of this blogposting, the group stands currently at 51, 316 51 423 members – another 3000 members joining the group in little over 15 hrs since that story was published, and 10 000 new members to the group since Thursday AM, when Prentice first introduced the bill.

This is galvanizing a lot of people – people that may not normally get involved in politics. It’s good to see.
