Canada’s Bill C-32 Became Draconian by Contrast to US DMCA

Canada’s Bill C-32 Became Draconian by Contrast to US DMCA

With the Librarian of Congress announcing of new exemptions to the DMCA, the Canada’s Bill C-32 is now looking more draconian than it has ever been. Instead of bringing the country in line with international standards as was supposed, it rather puts it above and beyond the other countries – the United States, for example.


Recently the Librarian of Congress introduced a few exemptions to the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act), most of them related to the issue of digital locks (circumvention of access-control technologies). From this point of view, Canada’s Copyright Reform Bill now looks more restraining and outdated even prior to its first step to becoming law.

Why is that happening? One could evaluate the difference if the legislation of the two countries are compared. For example, US law stipulates regular review of anti-circumvention exceptions, while the Canadian bill doesn’t have such rule. Then, Canadian law doesn’t have exceptions for e-books, jailbreaking a cellphone and circumventing the protection of DVD to make a short clip for non-commercial purposes – all allowed by American legislation. In addition, US fair use provision is much more flexible as compared to that of Canada.

The Canada’s representatives reacted to new US proposals in a different way. Canada’s minister of industry Tony Clement, who was one of those proposing Bill C-32 a couple of months ago, noted to all citizens who felt interested in the American DMCA exemptions that he had asked the Department to scrutinize their implications for the Canada’s proposed Bill. At the same time, his colleague James Moore, Heritage Minister, just sent the public back to the article about the dropping music sales that are supposed to indicate the need for ongoing reform.

If you remember, when the legislation was announced back in the beginning of summer, both of the ministers promised that it would be forward-looking and responsive in today’s fast-changing digital world. Well, looks like the world changes so fast that the Canada’s anti-circumvention exceptions for the proposed legislation have already become outdated, though only 2 months passed since their introduction.

All the citizens can see from the situation is that though the law was intended to bring the country in line with global standards and encourage local innovation and creativity, it appeared to create its own line for doing that.
