The Irish Drink the Same Old Whine

In light of the same old whine from Irish ISPs who drank a little too much Lessig in the pub last night, you may be interested in a speech at Canadian Music Week by Serge Sasseville of Quebecor, a large Canadian ISP:

“A Canadian telecommunications company does not answer only to its directors, shareholders and creditors. As a stakeholder, a good corporate citizen, it cannot remain insensitive to the piracy problems affecting the survival of Canadian content producers and rights holders. ….[O]ne thing is for sure: the confrontation between the ISPs and the content producers and rights holders must stop. They have to build together a strong business model that will protect and help develop the [production of] Canadian [culture].”

I guess Stephen Dedalus was right, Ireland really is the old sow that eats her farrow.
