Pirate Party of Canada Evidence Based Policy Making

More Rights Over Media

We will legalise the use of copyright works where no money changes hands, which will return to the people various rights including:

  • A right to “format shift” (for example, buying a CD then copying it to a portable media player such as an MP3 player or phone);
  • A right to share files between friends and peers (which provides free advertising that is essential for less well-known artists);

We will help create an environment in which we can all enjoy and share our cultural heritage free from the threat of legal action or censorship.
