The Globe and Mail :: Judge Shows More Sanity

The Globe and Mail: "'Downloading a song for personal use does not amount to infringement,' Mr. Justice Konrad von Finckenstein of the Federal Court of Canada wrote in his decision. 'I cannot see a real difference between a library that places a photocopy machine in a room full of copyrighted material and a computer user that places a personal copy on a shared directory.' "

Great news up north. Looks like they might end up being the 'Land of the More Free'.
