"Michael Geist has the good news and a link to the actual bill. Cory at Boing Boing has pulled out the pertinent details".As Doctorow writes:
"[The bill] declares private, personal copying to be “fair dealing” (like US fair use) and limits the prohibition on breaking DRM so that it’s only illegal to do so if you’re also violating copyright."As Geist writes:
"[T]he bill is consistent with implementing the WIPO Internet treaties in a manner that retains equal rights both online and offline."See also Manish Ranjan and Santosh K. Joy at LiveMint.com in Draft copyright Bill introduced, could transform film, music biz.
