Default ShortCuts

Our column this week seems rather topical in that there is so much controversy regarding copyright laws. These new laws will even have an effect on us woodworkers.
We test a new tool that has a dual purpose and will save space in your tool drawer. We also look at one of the sharper new tools on the market.
Take a look!

I don't see why there is controversy around copyright laws. It's not like the rules needed to change. Intellectual property remains the property of it's creator. Provided the idea is uniquely their own and not a simple, or complicated copy of other property. That said it remains the public domain, and common knowledge cannot be held accountable for copyright infringement. As it states, copyright applies to "Intellectual" Property. Further more most countries attribute that ownership unto 50 or so years postmortem.

I agree with you Jamison but the fact remains that there are too many new tools out there that make illegal copying easy and what's more, convenient. The new proposed Canadian laws will apparently make even a single copy for personal use illegal.
