Globe Then Says Fear the Pirates

This morning the Globe and Mail has published a story on its front page on the first arrest under the new anti-camcording provision.  The same arrest (arrest, not conviction) that was reported and blogged about two weeks ago.

Update: Appropriation Art files a complaint over similar coverage at CTV, while the Montreal Gazette reports that the owner of Cinema Guzzo now hopes that the single arrest will end unauthorized camcording in the city.

    I wonder what it looks like under Canadian legislation…

  2. Not surprised
    Don’t know why he would be surprised that the G&M would post a sensational headline like that. They seem to have been doing it for some time. For instance, the Brar family murders-suicide in Ottawa. It was reported on the 23rd in the Ottawa Citizen that they were shot, but only yesterday, the headline ran “Gun used in Ottawa Murder-Suicides”.
