A-ha! This clears up so much understanding surrounding the supposedly "made in Canada" Bill C-61 (Canadian DMCA). Much of the early brouhaha-ha surrounded the fact that this bill was very obviously crafted by the hands of the MPAA and the RIAA (both American organizations). But last week I received my latest issue of House-to-House (not available online) from my MP, Diane Ablonczy, and quite serendipitously on page 3 were these two useful articles. (I snipped out the middle article dealing with Consumer Protection and Natural Health Products):
Disregard for now the partial and misinformation in the Copyright Reform article, but look at the Made in Canada article at the top of the page. To qualify for the "Made in Canada" label, only 51% of its "production costs and last major transformation" has to occur in Canada. I suspect that with Bill C-61 the government contributed even a little more than 51%, so I guess we'll have to lay off on that complaint.
