I just wrote the following note to the CBC:
I thought the CBC was a public service supported with public dollars? If that is the case does Crown Copyright not already cover the content? And is your content not public domain and would a Creative Commons Attribution license not be the way to go? Otherwise why give you public dollars? You want my support, and I give it, but now you are going to far! This is not my CBC any more. My CBC broadcasts the news in myriad formats to keep us a critical thinking democracy, my CBC does not sell me the news or thwart me from sharing that news with others providing I attribute the source. My CBC is a knowledge disseminator and not a bounty hunter, that is not my CBC.
