Canadian Conservative Party pledge to reintroduce the DMCA if elected
As Canadians plan to return to the polls next week, they should know that the Conservative Party has pledged to reintroduce the bitterly controversial, one-sided Canadian DMCA, a copyright act modelled on the US failed Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The US DMCA has been in place for 10 years now and has resulted in tens of thousands of lawsuits against downloaders, the destruction of dozens of innovative businesses, and the mass-censorship of thousands and thousands of documents that were removed from the web by dishonest ideological opponents who accused them of infringing copyright. It has also totally failed to compensate artists or to reduce infringement.
