From FYI Music News:
Once a year a powerful American lobbying group drafts a hit list of foreign countries that it claims impede the fair trade of American culture and the remuneration in full to copyright holders in Hollywood, Silicon Valley and elsewhere in the land of the obese. And, once again, Canada is on its shit list.
The annual International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA) Report on Copyright Protectionis an attack dog for a coalition of US companies that produce copyright-protected materials. Canada has been in the cross-hair of this powerful lobby group for years, cited for a laundry list of malfeasance that has included everything from ineffectual copyright protection to a failure to adequately police and take down alleged online piracy sites.
