I just posted the article Canada deems file sharing legal!.

Thanks to a reaction from an alert reader Thudmeizer, who found out that file sharing is now legal in Canada. We did some checking and sure enough CRIA pronounced “creea” just took it in…

well the source its from http://msnbc.msn.com/id/4639920/ has a date & time of "3:49 p.m. ET March 31, 2004 April fools?

Considering that Canadians have a hefty tax on CD-R’s, blank audio tapes, and other blank recording media to cover the cost of piracy, file sharing darned well ought to be legal there. If the CRIA wants it to be illegal, then they should petition the tax be removed, and no longer receive revenue from sales of blank recording media. Can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Yep! Happy to be in Canada! Btw… even if it went the other way I COULDN’T GIVE A RAT’S FRICK’N ARSE!!! The whole system is eating itself into oblivion anyway and it will take a major catastrophe to reverse the diseased tissue that’s been fostered over years of misguided egos and corporatism. So whats next: MPAA/RIAA get so vile they create their own police force just like Gistapo Nazi Germany… Oh wait… THEY ALREADY HAVE… They just live in shadows!
