Canadian DMCA withdrawn for now

Shortly after posting my entry yesterday I found out that the Canadian DMCA Bill was withdrawn. As I had already posted my entry, I figured I would wait until today to let the few of you who read my blog know the good news. While I highly doubt my letter was the reason for this, I suspect the public outcry combined with a minority government is what caused the temporary delay. I am sure that another attempt will be made in the future, but I can at least hope that due to the outcry that the next attempt will at least try to keep with the spirit of Canada and will at a minimum address fair use issues properly. I'll probably be writing more letters to my MP.
