The National Post reports that Justice Minister Rob Nicholson has no plans to prioritize a new camcording law, despite the intense lobbying of recent weeks. Nicholson noted "that there is already a stiff copyright law in Canada to catch people who sneak camcorders into movie theatres for the purposes of filming for commercial distribution" and is quoted as saying that "I do point out to people that the country is not completely bereft of laws in this area." The article notes that the CMPDA now says that Canada is responsible for 20 percent of global camcording, a far cry from the claims of 50 percent that were raised just last month.
