EU Demands Canada Gut Its Copyright and Patent Laws

An anonymous reader writes “Late last year, a draft of the European Union proposal for the
intellectual property chapter of the Canada — EU Comprehensive Economic
Trade Agreement leaked online
.
The leak revealed that the EU was seeking some significant changes to
Canadian IP laws. Negotiations have continued and Michael Geist
has now obtained an updated copy
of the draft chapter
, complete with proposals from both the EU and
Canada. He says the breadth of the demands are stunning — the EU
is demanding nothing less than a complete overhaul of Canadian IP laws
including copyright, trademark, databases, patent, geographic
indications, and even plant variety rights.”
