"When did copyright law become sexy?" asked the Globe and Mail's Ivor Tossel in a piece headlined How did copyright become cool?

Tossel was reporting on a stunning about face by Canada's industry minister, Jim Prentice, when he backed down from tabling new copyright legislation "that could have completely changed the relationship between Canadians and their digital media."

Most Canadians give the issue of copyright very little thought although it is an issue that touches every one of us and most of the time we are completely oblivious to how deep it reaches.

For instance, almost all of us are copyright holders. Vacation pictures, grocery lists, doodles, and that great essay you wrote in grade ten, are all covered by copyright law. It is not even incumbent upon a person to do anything but take the picture, make the list, scratch the scribble, or write the paper to have created a work covered by copyright.

We are also all users of copyright. From software, to movies, books, magazines, music, sewing patterns, library books, school handouts, and hockey games on television - we all consume information created by someone else for which there apply not just a copyright but potentially layers of copyright.

The reason most Canadians know so little about a subject that means so much to them is possibly because they perceive the issue as incomprehensibly complicated. And for anyone who has ever read a software EULA (End User License Agreement), it is a reasonable perception.
