Bill C-11 in Canada
Heard from a prof of mine that Bill C-11 aka the Copyright Modernization Act has been passed into law with a $500 penalty at least. Has it officially passed the Senate?

Just need a heads up on this at least.

Here's what the Act is suppose to do.

I don't know what to make of this, but I don't really care about the CRTC at all.

Check this for the status of Bill C-11. As of now, most Conservatives have agreed to it.

David McGuinty has the best speech of them all haha~ I really wish Canada wouldn't try to go down this route. It's fear mongering and something I would expect from a different countries' government~

Already passed the Senate and given royal assent. It's law now.

Knowing Big Media, this still won't be enough for them when they discover that digital piracy is still ongoing and cannot be stopped.

And I also won't be surprised if more countries pick this idea up. You know they want to, it's only a question of when they'll pick the right time to do so.
