Canada introduced new legislation in Parliament on Thursday that would make it legal for users to copy their music onto their mp3 or portable devices, unlike it is in the United States.
This bill also pardons the ISPs from being in violation of copyright laws by their customers. Although they still are required to take down copyright violations.
Another aspect of the bill allows recording television and radio programs to watch at a later time and date. This practice is dubbed “time shifting.” The catch, the recorded material must not be permanently on the device.
