Here’s some stuff to love about the new bill, C-61::
-$500 per downloaded song
-No Fair Use rights for remix culture
-$20,000 for uploading content (youtube anyone?)
There is a campaign afoot to use one of these posters to create a mugshot of yourself to be used in a video to protest the proposed legislation.
There are some concerns by some remixers and culture co-opters that by tagging themselves as criminal they are accepting the legitimacy of the laws. And while the exercise is satirical I can see the advertising agency that the Canadian government uses choosing to use the Creative Commons attributions to represent the people as criminals by repositioning their images inside a government anti-piracy/anti-copying campaign ad.
