CACN Congratulates Government for Getting Tough on IP Crime

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - The Canadian Anti-Counterfeiting Network (CACN) today congratulated the federal government for taking strong action to protect copyright holders by re-introducing legislation to reform Canada's out-dated copyright laws. CACN strongly supports the principles behind the reform legislation and encourages the government to carefully consider all aspects of the bill to ensure that the intent behind this reform is fully acknowledged.

"We're pleased that the government is committed to getting tough on IP crimes," said Caroline Czajko, Chair of CACN. "Piracy is a massive problem in Canada which has a tangible economic impact on government revenue, legitimate retailers, rights holders and consumers. It's extremely difficult for legitimate retailers to compete with those who abandon all ethics as they steal and rip," she added.

The Canadian Anti-Counterfeiting Network (CACN) is a coalition of individuals, companies, firms and associations that have united in the fight against product counterfeiting and copyright piracy in Canada and internationally. The originating members of CACN include broad-based organizations, such as the Canadian Association of Importers and Exporters, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), the Electro-Federation Canada, and the Canadian Entertainment Software Association; companies from a range of industries; and law firms representing a host of intellectual property (IP) rights holders - Canadian and foreign - with significant businesses in Canada.
