Here comes the Canadian DMCA again

19 11 2008

Today’s Speech from the Throne (PDF) included one line about copyright:

Our Government will proceed with legislation to modernize Canada’s copyright laws and ensure stronger protection for intellectual property.

One year ago, the same government included a similar line in their Speech from the Throne and the result was Bill-61 (which thankfully died on the order paper when this fall’s election was called). Despite the blowback they received this past spring and summer about that bill, I doubt the next incarnation will be much better.

Hopefully the new Industry Minister is a bit more clueful than the last and takes feedback from Canadians more seriously.
