There’s a recent development that solidifies some people’s point of view that the top two parties in Canada have not, in practise, defended users rights and instead simply let the copyright industry dictate what copyright reforms need to happen. In a response to sub-committee recommendations, the Liberal Party wants to “combat the scourge and considerable economic and competitive damage to Canada’s manufacturing and services sectors and to Canada’s international reputation by the proliferation of counterfeiting and piracy of intellectual property.

Vote for the Liberal party and you get Bill C-60. Vote for the Conservative party and you get Bill C-61. We’ve done a number of comparisons last year, but the big message both bills sent across was that the users interests are ultimately neglected in favour of the copyright industry.

After some saw Bill C-61, they felt that the only choice was to simply vote Liberal – perhaps because they have not been around when Bill C-60 was introduced four years ago. So one might be wondering if their attitude on the matter has changed since then. Recently, Canadians have gotten their answer. In a response to sub-committee recommendations, the Liberal party had this to say:

    In relation to a recommendation on copy rights and antipiracy of intellectual property, the Liberal Party of Canada supports the recommendation as follows: “That the Government of Canada immediately introduce legislation to amend the Copyright Act, ratify the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT), amend related acts and ensure appropriate enforcement resources are allocated to combat the scourge and considerable economic and competitive damage to Canada’s manufacturing and services sectors and to Canada’s international reputation by the proliferation of counterfeiting and piracy of intellectual property.”
