IFPI Complains That Canada's New Copyright Bill Not Draconian Enough
from the make-it-worse! dept
Perhaps not a surprise, but Michael Geist points us to the news that the IFPI is complaining that Canada’s new copyright bill doesn’t go far enough in protecting its obsolete business model:
“The publishing of this bill is only the beginning of a process, and some of its provisions must be amended in order to bring Canada in line with its international treaty obligations as well as evolving international norms. As it is, it simply does not go far enough to protect creators and producers in the digital environment.”
This is despite the fact that Canada already has numerous draconian copyright provisions, extremely limited exceptions and a blank media tax that already assumes most Canadians are criminals. But, this is the recording industry we’re talking about. They won’t be satisfied until absolutely everything it doesn’t control is locked down.
