Although the topic of scrutinizing the text of Canada’s Copyright Reform bill has become quite a forbidden topic to discuss, the observers and experts in copyright still feel happy to forge ahead and read through the issues of the law for the purpose of understanding that very complicated and controversial piece of legislation. Even after MP James Moore called people performing a comprehensive analysis of the bill “extremists”, they keep on reading through it and sharing opinions.
Earlier the hottest discussions were raised over the ISP responsibility, destroying of homework a month after the course finishes, discrepancies between non-commercial and commercial law violations and digital locks overriding fair dealing rights.
Either way, the observers have always reminded that their opinion can’t be considered a legal opinion but the mere reading of average citizens through the bill and publicly discussing pros and cons of the different provisions.
Now the experts come to an agreement that it can only be a myth perpetuated by the interests of the corporate willing to tighten the copyright law that user rights supporters will not talk about exclusions to bypass and that the exclusions benefit to users, which means that nobody needs to worry about the anti-bypass rules. One only helps users of a secondary nature and one influences just a tiny part of users. Since there are 8 exclusions and none benefiting general consumers, the myth is totally dethroned.
After the observers have gone through several other anti- bypass rules, they made a conclusion that they represent an American style modeled after the DMCA. Moreover, the legislation is said to be based partly on its negative aspects.
Even when the anti-bypass section of the bill is not completely over viewed by the moment, the experts say to find a great amount of ground in it. They keep noting that developers could be prosecuted virtually a countless number of times notwithstanding that it isn’t statutory damages. Such a great number of gray areas have been found over there that it could even prevent Canadian development and programming and encourage kinds of businesses which would otherwise have tax benefits go off shore to some other countries.
Although there have been both positive and negative aspects found in the text of the bill, the experts admit that the light at the end of this tunnel is almost visible at the moment.

|isp's in canada are looking at a big bill for the cost of implementing the planned law....regulating the entire canadian population cant be cheap..!!....lawmaker please think again, go for a low cost open system of rights management, and i have a good solution... evry internet connection should be taxed 5 dollars a month, this then should go into a central "copyright holders fund"...and then holders get a share based on data rates...simple....copyright holders get paid and no one is a criminal...........ty sam|

|If and when most of us Canadians get off our dead rear ends and go vote against the party or parties that are supporting this copyright legislation, they will go on pushing their will on us. I posted a site for people to send a ready made letter to their MP's protesting this bill. I wonder if anyone even used it. It is the least we can do and it don't cost a dime. Look up your MP's office and send him or her an email.||
