I write plenty of articles on the subject of copyright extension,
and would gladly make them available to you, though I/we may want
to make some changes to make them more specific to Canada.

Perhaps you could send me some samples from there?

You might also be interested in:

Tjhe Union for the Public Domain <upd-discuss at lists.essential.org>

but I should warn you that it has some affect due to the presence
of Richard M. Stallman, who often treats it as if he owns it, and

I have made some efforts to rein him in from time to time, as I'm
an even older proponent of open source than he is.

Give the world eBooks in 2006!!!
