Here's what I found on the Access Copyright website (not to be confused with this blog's "Excess Copyright" name):

For Immediate ReleaseNote the date - March 3, 2006.
March 3, 2006
Toronto, ON – Access Copyright, The Canadian Copyright Licensing Agency and Creative Commons Canada, in partnership with Creative Commons Corporation in the US, today announced the development of a Canadian public domain registry. The ground-breaking project – the most comprehensive of its kind in Canada – will create an online, globally searchable catalogue of published works that are in the Canadian public domain.
So far, the only database of Canadian PD works I've seen is from a certain public domain loving gadfly named Wallace McLean. And he doesn't have revenues of more than $30 million a year.
So where is our Access Copyright public domain registry, after almost two years of waiting?????
Dunno - and I'm now an Access Copyright mole member ;)
So, maybe Access Copyright should spend USD $37 (less than that in real CDN $) to get the real inside scoop here at THE PUBLIC DOMAIN PROWLER.
Yes, for only $37, you too can supposedly profit from the public domain. This offer is available here (and it goes without saying that I make no endorsements as to what you are about to see...)
So here in the spirit of research or private study:
Here's EXACTLY What get When You Grab This Package Today...
1. You receive the Public Domain Prowler software complete with all of the features outlined above. ($197 value)
2. You receive Master Resale Rights to the software. This means you can legally sell my package yourself as well should you choose to! You will receive two webpages that you can use to sell it on from your own domain. See webpage 1 or webpage 2. ($297 value)
3. You receive the ten "Public Domain Reports", "How To Profit From Public Domain", the "Quick Reference Guide To Public Domain Criteria", and "How To Perform Certified Copyright Searches" reports with an accompanying resale rights certificate and webpage to sell them from ($49.95 value)
4. For a limited time during January 2008, you also receive the ebook "Public Domain: Turning Ideas To Dollars" with full Master Resale Rights ($37 value)
5. Also for the limited period during January 2008, you'll receive Joe Cooper's "Niche Profits Course" ($97 value)
What Would All This Be Worth to You?
If you are running, or are planning to create a business from the republishing and repackaging of creative works in the public domain, then this package will save you a great deal of time and is therefore priceless.
As you might imagine, software programs which include such a comprehensive set of features and information don't generally come cheap. In a very real sense, you usually only get what you pay for.
The good news is that I have decided to make this software as affordable as possible in order to make it accessible to as many people as possible in the hope of recouping my investment via quantity sold rather than price.
So, I am not selling the Public Domain Prowler package for $297. No, it's not even $197. Nor even $97?

comprehensive package is currently only
