    .....to target P2P swapping

    OTTAWA - The federal government announced several proposed changes to Canada's Copyright Act on Thursday, aimed at stopping file sharing using programs like Kazaa.

    If the amendments become law, internet service providers would be forced to make records of users who swap large numbers of songs or other material like movies and television programs online.

    According to the announcement, the changes would "clarify that the unauthorized posting or the peer-to-peer file-sharing of material on the Internet will constitute an infringement of copyright.

    "It will also be made clear that private copies of sound recordings cannot be uploaded or further distributed."

    The proposed amendments are expected to be introduced in the House of Commons later in the spring.
