+ - Canadian copyright "reform" denounced

Submitted by wakim1618
wakim1618 writes: In Canada, ctv news (the country's largest broadcaster) reports that libraries urge balance in pending copyright reforms". In particular the Canadian Library Association has issued a press release arguing that these amendments make the same mistakes as the American Digital Millennium Copyright Act:

"American law makes no differentiation in penalty between a counterfeiter circumventing technical protection measures for illegal profit and an individual circumventing technical protection measures to make a single copy... Our challenge is with the Hollywood lobbyists and the recording industry who are trying to take rights away from ordinary Canadians"
