Maybe the end soon of modding consoles!
Canada Govt. tables new copyright law that is worse then DMCA!
The Canadian Federal Government tabled a new copyright law this morning called C-11 that have many changes, the worse part is the fact it will be federal crime once it becomes law to break or circumvent digital locks for any reason, even if you have the right under the new law for personal usage if means bypassing the digital lock, you will be subject to large fines and possible jail time!
This has not been the first time Canada been trying to pass a DMCA type law, but this time around the current govt. has a majority of seats so most likely it will be passed before Christmas?
Does this mean the death of modding Video Gaming Consoles within Canada, even for your own personal usage, as even importing the tools to do so will be illegal?
