Back in February, I commented on the ban of Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing“, claiming it was not a major concern. Others disagreed, and the public reaction was enough that the CRTC asked the CBSC to review the decision. As a result, the ban was effectively overturned. This is a great example of how censorship works in a democracy – there is discussion and consensus. A press release outlining the discussion is available, as well as the full text of the review. The latter is excellent reading for its considerations of public concerns and artistic contexts.
