According to the Computer and Communications Industry, Canada's copyright law is just fine as it is. The the Computer and Communications Industry Association is made up of Microsoft, Google, T-Mobile, Fujitsu, AMD, eBay, Intuit, Oracle and Yahoo, among others. Michael Geist reports. "Rather than building on the tired narrative that the current law is an embarrassment, the message from the technology world was that Canada is actually doing just fine. The CCIA warned that including Canada on the list of countries that need reforms undermines the credibility of the process, adding 'Canada's current copyright law and practice clearly satisfy the statutory adequate and effective standard. Indeed, in a number respects, Canada's laws are more protective of creators than those of the United States.'"
