Canadian version of the US DMCA coming soon?

Head over to Michael Gist’s site for information about a new bill that could be introduced as soon as tomorrow that will have huge impacts on peer to peer file sharing in Canada. The main bullet point is that file sharers would be fined $500 PER copyrighted file they shared.

I have a hard time believing something like this, at least in it’s current state, would get passed in Canada without any controversy.
