Conservatives Promise to Re-Introduce Canadian DMC

jeevesbond writes "It's election time up here in Canada, oddly the Conservatives have been very slow — advanced polls have already started, voting proper happens on the 14th — to release a party platform, showing what they plan to do if elected. Now the platform has been released, their reason for hiding it becomes a little clearer: it includes a promise to re-introduce the Canadian DMCA. Backed by US media, this legislation has proved to be controversial, and was withdrawn on the last attempt.

Michael Geist has a post on his blog showing election candidates who have signed a pledge for fair copyright."
