Canada Introduces Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement Compliance Law

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year and a half ago

Canada 0

An anonymous reader writes "The Canadian government today introduced a bill aimed at ensuring the Canada complies with the widely discredited Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. Despite the European Union's total rejection of ACTA, the new bill is designed to ensure that Canada is positioned to ratify ACTA by addressing border measures provisions. The core elements of the bill include the increased criminalization of copyright and trademark law as well as new powers for Canadian border guards to detain shipments and work actively with rights holders to seize and destroy goods without court oversight or involvement. The bill disturbingly suggests that Canada is gearing up to ratify ACTA since it addresses many of the remaining non-ACTA compliant aspects of Canadian law."
