'We Are Mystified Why the Americans Settled For This'

The Periodical Writers Association of Canada has come through with a strong statement advising Canadian freelancers to opt out of the copyright class action settlement. The money paragraph from PWAC president Gordon Graham:

"Even measured in raw dollars [$10-to-$18 million], this American settlement seems like a poor deal for freelancers. We are mystified why the American freelancers settled for what appears to be such a bad deal, but that is their business. It shouldn't be forced upon Canadians."

The full news release can be viewed at PWAC's home page, http://www.pwac.ca.
