UPDATE- Canada’s New Copyright Law tabled in House of Commons

June 2, 2010

Although it’s too early to tell for certain, it seems as though the rumours about what was to be in Canada’s new Copyright Law were pretty much dead on. A few weeks ago I blogged about the impending introduction of the new law, Bill C-32. According to today’s CBC report, Michael Geist, chair of Internet Law at Ottawa University claims that the Bill as written, “is flawed, but fixable.”

We’ll be following this one very carefully. Stay tuned.

Full text of Bill C-32 can be read here.

The announcement was made in a rather unusual way, from the headquarters of video game designer EA in Montreal. The news release is linked here.
