Bill C-59: An Act to amend the Criminal Code (unauthorized recording of a movie) was tabled in the House of Commons earlier today. It is a short bill (6-page PDF, with more than half being overhead of title page/etc). It focuses entirely on the issue of recording audio or video in theatres. The bill itself seems to fall within what I was hoping, but I still expect the media, lobbiests, and misinformed politicians try to use this as a thin edge of the wedge to try to gain support for far more controversial laws.
Please see Michael Geist's BLOG posting for an analysis.
This bill is not a Copyright bill in that while it references definitions in the Copyright act, it only modifies the Criminal Code.
