‘Canadian DMCA’ Copyright Bill Dead Again

An anonymous reader writes “Like some kind of B-movie horror series, the latest attempt to revise Canada’s copyright law and introduce DMCA-like provisions, Bill C-32, has again died on the order table as Canada’s minority government has fallen after a non-confidence vote. This makes it the third copyright revision bill since 2005 to have died. Although this version was regarded as better than previous ones, it still contained awkward anti-circumvention provisions. We can be confident that some kind of DMCA-style copyright bill will be resurrected, but it will have to wait for the next government sequel.”
