Submission + - Canadian RCMP's abandon the Music piracy fight ! (ledevoir.com) 1

Laindraug writes: "The 'Le Devoir' French canadian Montreal Newspaper had a front page title today ( november 8) that said (once traduced) : 'Pirates can sleep well' : RCMP'S is abandoning the fight against music piracy because 'its just too big to fight against' ` The newspaper also shows the difference between Canada and USA, stating that in october, Jammie Thomas in USA was condemned to a 220 000$ dollar fine for having downloaded 24 mp3's..and in Canada, there will just be no more police to look at this kind of piracy. 'Today, its so simple to copy, everybody is clueless on how to fight this' , as stated by Canadian RCMP's. Canadian Pirates, rejoice."

  • Someone got a clue. There is still the CD-RW/DVD-RW tax that needs to be dealt with, but this is a good step. The RCMP can concentrate on fighting dangerous crime and the like.
