L'avantage qu'a le Canada dans ses discussions sur son "DMCA" est
que maintenant on a assez de donnees pour mesurer precisemment l'impact
du P2P sur la situation des artistes musiciens. Cet impact est tout
simplement proche de zero (en plus ou en moins) comme le montre
l'article ci apres qui fait un tres bon tour d'horizon en chiffres
et en citations.

Nous on a toujours notre EUCD, nos mesures techniques ...


Following years of lobbying by CRIA, a new reality is only now coming to
light — music downloading is not responsible for the ills of the music
industry and Canadian artists have not been harmed by the sales declines
that have occurred over the past five years. Although faced with
significant pressure to reform Canadian copyright law, it is
increasingly apparent that the industry’s ills are not the result of
peer–to–peer downloading. Moreover, the Canadian experience with private
copying suggests that a levy system may provide an effective alternative
to adequately compensate artists for lost royalties that may occur due
to the current popularity of file sharing services
