The dissolution of Parliament on March 25th has led the Copyright Modernization Act (Bill C-32), the third attempt at Canadian copyright over the last decade or so, to die on the Order Paper. The issues surrounding Bill C-32 remain, however, and this includes ongoing debate over the prohibition of circumventing Technical Protection Measures (TPMs). Meanwhile, the online entertainment industry is increasingly moving toward cloud-based content. It will be interesting to see whether a cloud-based entertainment industry will appease concerned user advocates when a fourth copyright bill is introduced.
