Canadian Copyright Bill

The Canadian government’s proposed reform of the Copyright Act has passed “Second Reading”. For those of you who are a little rusty on your Canadian parliamentary procedure, this means that Bill C-32 will next go to committee for analysis and debate. Everyone will try to score political points in committee. After that, the Bill may proceed with or without amendments, or in theory it could still be killed after the committee stage.  The digital lock provisions are still among the Bill’s most contentious issues. 

While we’re on the topic of legislation, Bill C-28, the government’s long-overdue Anti-Spam Bill, has passed the committee stage and is being sent back to the House of Commons for “Third Reading”.
