conference board of canada
You may remember last year that the Conference Board of Canada (who, until then, was pretty well respected) released a report on "intellectual property policy" that was blatantly plagiarized from US copyright industry lobbyists. While the Conference Board at first insisted that it stood by the report, eventually it recalled three reports and admitted that they "did not follow the high quality research standards" of the organization. Many months later, it appears that the replacement report has been released, and it's much more balanced. I still think there's plenty in the report that doesn't make much sense to me, but it's significantly better than the totally one-sided, blatantly plagiarized piece from last year.
