Bangkok Post Points to Canada As Evidence That Special 301 Ham Handed Protectionism

Commentary by Stephen Downes

The United States has placed Canada on a special watch list for digital piracy. We've all been having a good chuckle over that here in Canada, as there is nothing remotely pro-piracy in either our legislation or enforcement. Michael geist writes that the move (being blamed, probably wrongly, on the Obama administration) would probably backfire. He expands on this in The Mark. And today, the Bangkok Post sums it up: "Washington seems to be using its annual IP report to hammer nations to enact and enforce US IP laws, or suffer the consequences. This appears to be nothing but ham-handed protection of big businesses at the expense of free trade."
