Things have been developing in Canada fast and furious. The new copyright legislation (Bill C-32) has finally been posted online.

We’ve already seen an early analysis on the copyright legislation earlier today thanks to Michael Geist in the media lock-up. Later on in the afternoon, an organization representing documentary film-makers condemned the bill for being to strict because a digital lock can override any fair dealing in a given work. A digital lock is inherently in DVDs thanks to the built in copy protection known as the Content Scrambling System (CSS) which pushes all movies on such discs non-fair dealings terrain. The same is said for BluRay thanks to the BD copy protection.

While it is early on, Parliamentarians who were working on the legislation can rest a little easier knowing that the bill is finally available to Canadians.

We haven’t had a chance to sift through the text ourselves, but we will now be able to in the coming days. Be warned, though, it is a long one – a bill spread over 4 pages which contains 63 sections to read through. It’s not hard to see, though, that this will be the subject of debate for a while now.

"film-makers condemned the bill for being to strict"
