CIPPIC has launched, a new website promoting grassroots advocacy on digital issues.  DA's initial focus is on the ongoing copyright consultations.  As part of this, DA has set up an Ideatorrent - an open source tool that allows Canadians to suggest, discuss, and vote on solutions to copyright problems with the ultimate goal of providing a grassroots submission to the copyright consultations.

Other issues highlighted on DA include Canada's Safe Internet Act (the Electronic Consumer Protection Act), recent lawful access legislation (Bills C-46 and C-47, and Net Neutrality. More issues and content will be added as legislative priorities shift.
