Can Canada be the next creative superpower?

25 11 2009

The creative sector in the U.K accounts for 8% of the GDP. In Canada the numbers are estimated to be around 3.8%. Why is this so different? Aren’t we creative here in Canada?

Well, for one…our copyright and digital laws have been very progressive. Unfortunately thats about to change – if we haven’t done enough during the consultation. In the U.K, the new Digital Economy Bill is set to put an end to digital piracy (and possibly a portion of the economy’s creative sector!). For Canada, I think now’s the time to shine…the time to take the lead by establishing progressive copyright laws that give our creative sector a boost!
