An anonymous reader writes "Michael Geist has used the Canadian freedom of information act to
obtain a secret
ministerial document on Canadian copyright reform that provides the
government position on virtually every controversial issue from last
year's Bill C-32. The government has no good explanation for its DMCA
approach and calls provisions requiring the destruction of course
materials part of an 'essential balance.' On the U.S. piracy watch
list, it says 'Canada does not recognize the validity of the Special
301 process and
considers it to be flawed. The Report does not employ a clear
methodology in its country ranking, as it relies on industry
allegations rather than empirical evidence and analysis.'"
