: : In Canada it is legal for somebody to copy a sound recording for personal use. Does copy protection, such as Secure Digital Music Initiative (SDMI), infringe on that right to copy?
Dear Mr. Boyer,
I believe the law in Canada is very close to the US law and the world law. It is my belief that the copying for personal use is an infringement. If the copy is not sold, distributed or given aweay then the copyright proprietor may never become aware of the infringment.
