Canadian Copyright Act

The Canadian government on Wednesday announced it would hold a press conference regarding pending amendments to the Copyright Act, a move said to resemble the DMCA measure in the US. The conference is set to transpire at 9:30 on Thursday, June 12th for press, with ministerial comments following at 10:45. Press have been advised that no wireless communications devices would be permitted at the assembly, including cell phones, modems, and wireless microphones.

Last time a motion was set before the Canadian government to modify the Copyright Act, the motion was quashed, with Industry Minister Jim Prentice giving no indication of why the decision was delayed.

    Unlikely

    If Canada has one good thing going, is that file sharing is not illegal. They kill that now, what's left? Don't think it will happen.

    And this one...

    ... Will get squashed too. It's quite apparent the people don't want this, so why keep trying? Come up with something fair and balanced and let the PEOPLE vote on it. I don't want some American corporate shills telling me what I can and can't do with my media.
