Unhappy with the expansion of fair-dealing, Access Copyright and the Writers Union of Canada have  issued a strong denouncements of the bill, but the Canadian Entertainment Software Association and the Canadian Recording Industry Association have  given it strong praise. Also in contrast to Access Copyright, SOCAN has issued a generally positive statement, subject to further detailed analysis.The Canadian Private Copying Collective has criticized the bill for failing to extend the private copying levy to digital audio devices such as MP3s.

 

Some more analysis to follow soon. . .

 

[Note: a very useful side-by-side comparison of Bills C-61 and C-32 has been posted here.]
