In Kanada haben Musiker, Songwriter und Produzenten die “Canadian Music Creator Coalition” (CMCC) gegründet und geben damitein Statement gegen das Vorgehen der Musikindustrie ab.
Artists do not want to sue music fans. The labels have been suing our fans against our will, and laws enabling these suits cannot be justified in our names. We oppose any copyright reforms that would make it easier for record companies to do this.[…] The government should not blindly implement decade-old treaties designed to give control to major labels and take choices away from artists and consumers. Laws should protect artists and consumers, not restrictive technologies. Consumers should be able to transfer the music they buy to other formats under a right of fair use, without having to pay twice.Mitglieder des CMCC sind u.a.: Barenaked Ladies, Avril Lavigne, Sarah McLachlan, Sum 41, Stars, Billy Talent, Broken Social Scene, Sloan.
