Ripped off by Stephen Harper, at $16.67 a f*#!ing page!

A few days ago, I (finally) registered “I Can Explain” (it’s a three-page skit poking fun at celebrity culture) as copyright on the Canadian Intellectual Property Office web site. It cost me fifty bucks! Fifty bucks! Artists are supposed to suffer for their craft, and all that, but there should at least be a sliding scale for artistic copyright. I mean I don’t have a problem shelling out fifty big ones for copyrighting “Devil’s Highway” (an in-progress novel which I should also register soon), but fifty smackers for a three-page skit? Sure gives credence to the notion of the ‘starving artist’. Sheesh!
