R.I.P. Captain Copyright

Captain Copyright is no more. Challenged by just about everyone, especially the Canadian Library Association, the Canadian super-hero for children thinking about copy-theft has been taken offline and replaced by a statement by an unnamed person or group that finishes with the wish:

We truly hope that there will come a time when the copyright community – including educators, librarians and copyright collectives – can work together to provide a unbiased teaching tool that provides teachers and students with a balanced view of copyright.


  1. So we don’t know if Captain Copyright met a glorious end battling some nefarious arch-villain?

  2. He met a fair damsel (hereinafter “faird”) from Ealing and was beguiled by her charms.
