カナダの著作権法(Bill C61)

2008年6月12日付けで発効したカナダの著作権法(Bill C61)は、YouTubeへビデオクリップをアップロードすることや、リージョン・フリーのDVDプレーヤーを使用することを違法としています。様々な物議を醸し出しそうな法律ですね。

As of 12th June 2008, the new copyright law ‘Bill C61′ has come into effect in Canada where it becomes illegal, for example, to upload clips to YouTube, or to use a region-free DVD player in the country. I think this law is going to create lots of arguments among Canadian people this summer! Don’t you think there should have been proper consultation period before the Canadian government decided to amend the law into the current one?

カナダ政府のこうした強行的な法律制定に批判的なブログの記事を1つ紹介しておきます。全文、英語ですが、興味のある方は読んでみてください。

Here is an article from a blog on the Internet I have come across today. The author seems to to be quite critical of this Bill and of the way the government has passed the Bill out of the blue. Please read on!
