The CBC and NFB produce massive amounts of content annually but all of it is tightly controlled with heavy restrictions on use and re-use (even for educational institutions). Libraries currently have no rights to archive and make accessible this digital content for future generations. It would be amazing to see this content opened up to other memory institutions for long term curation. The NFB in particular charges for everything (even it's Vimeo channel) and both organizations reserve all rights on content that is produced with a lot of government money.
