Canadian copyright "reform" denounced

wakim1618 (579135) writes "In Canada, ctv news (the country's largest broadcaster) reports that libraries urge balance in pending copyright reforms". In particular the Canadian Library Association has issued a press release arguing that these amendments make the same mistakes as the American Digital Millennium Copyright Act:

"American law makes no differentiation in penalty between a counterfeiter circumventing technical protection measures for illegal profit and an individual circumventing technical protection measures to make a single copy... Our challenge is with the Hollywood lobbyists and the recording industry who are trying to take rights away from ordinary Canadians""
