Proposed U.S. Ambassador to Canada Pledges More Pressure on Intellectual Property

During the years of debate over Canadian copyright reform, I frequently argued that caving to U.S. demands on issues such as digital locks would not relieve the pressure but rather invite more of the same. While Canada has done much of what the U.S. has asked - digital locks, anti-counterfeiting legislation, and patent reforms coming from CETA - the reality is that the list of demands never really ends. With that in mind, it comes as no surprise that Bruce Heyman, the nominee to be the next U.S. Ambassador to Canada, has promised to increase pressure on Canada for more intellectual property reform.
