    Seems like Im a little late on the boat with this as I do not know what they are doing and when this happened, but from my guess, there trying to crack down on piracy and look at what we are doing on the internet?

    Or they are taking the "Youtube Copyrights" to a new extreme?

    If either of these Guess' are wrong please correct me as I would hate to see my Electronic rights to go down the crapper.

    Read more into it, So pretty much they are going to bring the American standards for DMCA Copyright law into canada?? Its bad enough on youtube alone.

    For those uninterested in reading through the links, here's Canadian Copyright in a nutshell :

    In the late 70's, early 80's Cassette Tapes were being sold and the Canadian decided to charge a per unit fee (extra tax) on Cassettes. (Interestingly here are some current stats on fees being charged:
    Audio cassettes of 40 minutes or more in length 24¢
    CD-R, CD-RW, CD-R Audio, CD-RW Audio and MiniDisc 29¢
    Private copying tarriff - Current tarriff) In essence, these fees were collected to pay artists for Canadian's privileges to copy their music. This included BETA Tapes, VHS Tapes, CD's, DVD's and pretty much any re-recordable media. There was a decision made in 2003 in a case that the RIAA or someone tried to get a Canadian to pay royalties, and the Supreme Court Judge said no, as Canadians have already paid a fee for that reason. That has since allowed Canadians to download pretty much all content they wish, without any serious reprocussions. Where Canadians can get nabbed however, is by uploading content, then just like in the States, a person can get nabbed for being a digital pimp.

    Hope this helps clear some of the confusion, and adds another reason why being a Canadian rocks!
