    I think we have to wait for Harper's Copyrights Act to come into effect...if it was voted as planned.
    Not white, not black just passionate shades of grey...

    It is called Bill C-32 and there is a lot of opposition to this bill since it is supposedly a clone of the US copyright laws (DMCA) and would severely restrict the freedoms of ordinary Canadians. It is being pushed by the Conservative government and appears mainly to protect the rights of corporations (record producers and motion picture distributors) while making it a crime to break digital locks. It purports to allow copying for personal use but if the content is protected, the copying would be illegal.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for this law to pass in a minority government.
