Despite the expectations that the new Canadian DMCA would be released Wednesday, it appears that the bill's introduction has been delayed as the guy behind it, Jim Prentice, figures out what to do. Some reports note that Prentice apparently promised the recording industry that the bill would be introduced before the summer, which seems fairly ridiculous. Why should he promise one industry anything -- especially when there's so much consumer and business opposition to the bill? In the meantime, though, while not introducing the bill, it does appear that folks in Prentice's office have been busy scrubbing Wikipedia to make sure this controversy isn't on Prentice's page.
