Submission + - Canadian Copyright Lobby Astroturfs C-32 (michaelgeist.ca)

whisper_jeff writes: Michael Geist has an article bringing to light an astroturfing campaign by Canada's copyright lobby groups. "The copyright lobby, almost certainly led by the Canadian Recording Industry Association, has launched a major astroturf campaign in which it hopes to enlist company employees to register their support for Bill C-32 and to criticize articles or comments that take issue with elements of the proposed legislation." Needless to say, I think this encourages a letter to one's MP to make them aware of the astroturfing (and what it means) so that politicians won't be fooled by the fake groundswell of support for Bill C-32.
