Copyright Infringement in Canada

The story of Montrealer Gérémi Adam, who is an alleged copyright pirate, has attracted more attention after the man dropped out of sight on the date of a scheduled court appearance last month.  He did appear in court yesterday to answer the charges and to plead not guilty.  If the case goes to trial it will provide a good test case on what evidence the court will accept as proof that a particular individual posted a particular pirated copy of a movie.  He was charged before Canada’s new anti-camcording law came into effect, so he will face penalties under the previous copyright infringement provisions.  Another Montreal man, Louis-René Haché, was charged under the new anti-camcording legislation enacted last year and his case may provide a test of that law.
