Submission + - SOPA on Steroids: Canadian Music Labels Declare War on the Internet (michaelgeist.ca)

An anonymous reader writes: The Canadian music industry is demanding SOPA on steriods for Canadian copyright law seeking reforms that would create liability risk for social networking sites, search engines, blogging platforms, video sites, and many other websites featuring third party contributions. If that were not enough, the industry is also calling for a new iPod tax, an extension in the term of copyright, a removal of protections for user generated content, parody, and satire, as well as an increase in statutory damage awards. Taken together, the music industry demands make SOPA look like some minor tinkering with the law.
