So downloading movies, music, and what games is legal or illegal in Canada?
It always changes slightly. ^_^

I was driving by a car lot today and thought "That's odd, that Hyundai dealer has Mercedes Benz now!! I took a second look and you know what? If the courts can't keep the Koreans from banging out a knock off dead ringer Benz they'll go after kids stealing songs.
Come to think of it Canadian tire has really cheap chineese motorcycles that sure do look like Hondas.

"No other advanced Western democracy is on the list and Canada is regarded as a lawless hub for bootleg movies, ripped-off software and pirated chips that bypass copyright protections."

Excuse me? Me thinks Obama should turn his bloody all knowing eyes on his own damn country. Hypocritical pricks.

You missed my point, I've read that Honda replacement parts actually fit the damned things... So much for copyright laws right?

Someone sent me this, I love the spelling errors. Someone downloaded their education and it didn't come with a spell checker.

So for all those that are firm on piracy being an act of stealing and not copyright infringement will someone please be a pioneer and please provide case law demonstrating their belief is tangible and not misguidance?

There are a lot of people out there and on this very board that feel piracy is theft. If it were theft it would be very easy to demonstrate it as such and back it up with case law.
