Canadian DMCA -- It's dead, for now

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 5 years ago

Government 0

An anonymous reader writes "Like the previous Bill C-60 before it, the proposed Bill C-61 that would bring DMCA-like laws to Canada is poised to die on the order table, never to receive a vote, as the current minority government falls. An election call is expected in days. Everybody expects that some form of these laws will be back yet again (third time's a charm?). There are too many interests pushing for change to let it go. But here's a chance to influence politicians about it in an election campaign, and hopefully strike a better balance. And for those of you in the rest of the world who are laboring under a DMCA-like copyright law, let's hear your best stories about why such laws are a good or bad idea, and if bad, how you would emend the law you've got to make it tolerable. With the polls probably on Oct. 14th, Canadians will be looking for a few good ideas."
