Stop Canadian SOPA!!!!



http://www.ccer.ca/send-a-letter-to-...canadian-dmca/

Quote:
On September 29th, 2011 the recently re-elected Conservative Government reintroduced the Copyright Modernization Act, Bill C-11 (previously Bill C-32). Given that the Conservatives now hold the majority of seats in the House, the quick and easy passage of this ‘Made In America’ legislation is no more a matter of ‘will it pass’ but a matter of ‘just how quickly will it pass.’

Heritage Minister James Moore has indicated that once Bill C-11 reaches the committee stage, witnesses who appeared before the old C-32 committee will not be heard from again. This despite that fact that there is a new Industry Minister on this portfolio. This move coupled by Moore’s confirmation that the committee will be meeting for extended hours each week and the fact that appeasing the United States has emerged as a bigger Conservative priority than making good on their promise to scrap the wasteful long gun registry.

Although Bill C-11 appears to be more flexible than the previous attempts at copyright reform, this bill is flawed to its core by the inclusion of strict, anti-circumvention provisions. Understandably, Canadians are concerned at how easily their rights are trumped by the overriding protection for digital locks included in this legislation and it is to this effect that the CCER has updated its online letter writing tool. It is essential that Canadians speak out about their concerns with Bill C-11 while it is still open to amendments.

Bill C-11 could bring SOPA-like online piracy laws to Canada

By Chase Kell | The Right Click – Thu, 26 Jan, 2012

Laptop shows Wikipedia's blacked out opening page on January 18, 2012.

As the murky status of SOPA and PIPA keeps us in a fog, a Canadian digital policy expert warns us of a clandestine campaign to bring similar online piracy laws north of the border.

The Stop Online Piracy Act was effectively shelved - for the time being - by the U.S. House of Representatives last week. What has been dubbed the "largest online protest in history" appeared to ruffle some feathers in Congress, but Michael Geist, Internet and ecommerce law professor at the University of Ottawa, has warned of a SOPA-like bill to be reintroduced before the House of Commons in the near future.

In a recent post to his personal blog, Geist delves into Bill C-11, a copyright reform legislation that could allow our country to become "a prime target for SOPA-style rules."
"Lobby groups are likely to intensify their efforts to export SOPA-like rules to other countries," explains Geist. "In fact, a close review of the unpublished submissions to the Bill C-32 legislative committee reveals that several groups have laid the groundwork to add SOPA-like rules into Bill C-11, including blocking websites and expanding the 'enabler provision' to target a wider range of websites."

One of Geist's major concerns lies in an effort to expand on the "enabler provision" of Bill C-11. As Jameson Berkow explains in a Financial Post story, "groups such as the Canadian Independent Music Association and the Entertainment Software Association of Canada have been advocating for Ottawa to expand the provision to allow them to go after not just sites containing copyright-infringing content, but also those 'enabling' acts of infringement as well."

Similar to the proponents of SOPA, which largely consists of Hollywood film studios and major record labels, the bulk of those supporting the reintroduction of Bill C-11 earn their keep in the entertainment industry. They argue that a lack of substantial anti-piracy legislation has and will continue to put millions of industry jobs at risk.

Yet Google Inc., perhaps the largest presence to stand against SOPA-style legislation, has argued that such rules, had they been implemented back in 2004, would have made it impossible for YouTube to exist, let alone flourish into the world's largest online video service.

Geist was one of the first to raise awareness of the Canadian implications of SOPA, and his latest blog on Bill C-11 has done much of the same. But Barry Sookman, partner in the Toronto office of McCarthy Tétrault LLP, is quick to discredit Geist's arguments.

"Even if Bill C-11 is amended to cover sites that are primarily designed, operated or used to enable infringement or which induce infringement it would still be inconceivable that the section could be used 'to shut down mainstream sites such as YouTube' as he claims," said Sookman in the Financial Post. "Michael Geist's blog post fails to point out that Section 27(2.4) of Bill C-11 has six factors that a court must consider before it can conclude that a site is liable for enablement. It is not remotely possible that mainstream sites such as YouTube could be caught."

Stay tuned, folks. It looks like the polarizing battle for anti-piracy legislation will continue for Canadians, as well as our neighbours to the south.
Canadians, Please Take Action: http://www.ccer.ca/letter-wizard-enter/

yeah, and it's obviously just the start... as time passes on the Government was to know everything you do and control it to the last detail.

I would definitely say the current generation is going to have the last of the best time here (in the world). The new generations are going to have a lot of different crap to deal with and possibly already molded to accept the new "terms" more easily.

i think we are doomed.. here is the official response from Burlington:

"Thank you for your e-mail and for sharing your views with me. Our Government recognizes the critical role modern copyright laws play in protecting and creating jobs in Canada’s digital economy. This legislation will ensure that Canada’s copyright laws are modern, flexible and in line with current international standards. It will encourage new ideas and protect the rights of Canadians whose research, development and artistic creativity strengthen our economy. This legislation is the result of one of the largest consultations of its kind in Canadian history. The Government acknowledges the extensive review and input already provided by stakeholders and Parliamentarians on the copyright modernization bill introduced in the last Parliament. From that process, the message from Canadians is clear, Canada urgently needs to pass legislation to update its Copyright Act. By reintroducing this Bill without changes, the Government is reiterating its support for a balanced approach to copyright reform. This was also promised in our platform in the previous election (page 15).

Sincerely,

Mike Wallace "


and thats why i voted NDP !!

Canadian judges and politicians have grown too old and out of touch with the reality of today's digital world to be trusted to make sound decisions about privacy rights, Ontario's privacy watchdog has warned. Privacy Commissioner Ann Cavoukian believes will amount to a major breach of rights and freedoms.
"We are talking about the expansion of surveillance without judicial authorization. THIS SHOULD SCARE YOU," she said.
