Justin Primus writes: "Michael Geist's weekly column (Toronto Star
version) dismantles recent
claims that Canada is the world's leading movie piracy haven.
The article uses the industry's own data to demonstrate that the
assertions about movie camcording and its economic impact are greatly
exaggerated and that the MPAA's arguments about Canadian copyright law
are misleading. I particularly liked how Geist dug up the fact
that the MPAA
itself says that there have only been 179 camcorded movies over the
past three years out of the 1,400 that the Hollywood studios released."
