As an update to my previous post in August (click here), this bill (Bill C-8) has been re-introduced in Canadian Parliament, and is currently in second reading. Bill C-8 amends the Copyright Act and the Trade-marks Act to add new civil and criminal remedies and new border measures designed to curtail the importation of knock-off products.

Stay tuned, this bill is expected to get through the Parliamentary process and could be law in 2014.
