This might be over on ATS, but I didn't look..sue me...

Downloading copyrighted music from peer-to-peer networks is legal in Canada, although uploading files is not, Canadian copyright regulators said in a ruling released Friday.

Canada says this because Celine Dion, Alanis Morrisette and RUSH said it was alright with them.

It actually is illegal already in the UK and every country isnt it???

Evidently not. They are just trying to figure out new ways of regulating what people will do anyway.

So when will the U.S. step into Canada's footsteps concerning this. When will the pigs fly???

I LOVE Canada. I go there every year to visit relatives. I LOVE Toronto... This is yet ANOTHER reason to make me love Canada...

Our great friends up north... they're like us... except they don't meddle in other country's business. (Leave this for the political forum!)

P2P file sharing should be legal. NO DOUBT.

DAMN RIAA. Damn them to hell.

I may move to Canada... if life here in the US gets worse...

**SIGH** Life is already hard.
