Submission + - Conservatives Promise to Re-Introduce Canadian DMC (www.cbc.ca)

iplayfast writes: "http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/3439/ A re-elected Conservative Government led by Stephen Harper will reintroduce federal copyright legislation that strikes the appropriate balance among the rights of musicians, artists, programmers and other creators and brings Canada's intellectual property protection in line with that of other industrialized countries, but also protects consumers who want to access copyright works for their personal use. We will also introduce tougher laws on counterfeiting and piracy and give our customs and law enforcement services the resources to enforce them. This will protect consumers from phoney and sometimes dangerous products that are passed off as reliable brand-name goods. In otherwords, the Conservatives remain bought by the music and film industries."
