Kind of odd that I would learn about this from Boing Boing and not from the CLA itself, but there you go. CLA has written a two page letter (PDF) to Access Copyright about Captain Copyright in which, "CLA insists that Access Copyright withdraw the site until the broader copyright community can assist Access Copyright in implementing an unbiased and balanced presentation of the rights of creators, rights-holders and users." That's the final sentence, and the preceding pages make the justification for this action. I did not know that it was illegal to advertise to children in Quebec. That's a great law, and I wish it were true everywhere!
