Proposed changes to track file swappers

The federal government took a big step yesterday toward a crackdown on those who illegally swap music and other electronic files, outlining proposed changes to Canada’s copyright act that would provide artists and recording companies with much greater protection.
Ottawa said it would introduce changes to the Copyright Act by the end of June, including implementation of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) treaties that would make free downloading illegal, and would force Internet service providers to keep track of customers who swap large numbers of copyright-protected files such as songs, movies and TV shows.
