MP3 Rocket is proud to announce the release of v6.2 multi-connection download technology.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 28, 2012
The Canadian C-11 copyright reform bill includes the expansion of the fair-use provision, new consumer rights for format shifting, time shifting and backup copies, a provision facilitating recording user generated content, and allowing user created mash-ups.
Specifically: C-11’s section 29.23 of the Act allows for “time-shifting.” Individuals are able to make a fixation of a communication signal or reproduce a work, sound recording or performance being broadcast for the purpose of privately viewing the work at a later time, provided that the signal is received legally, only one recording is made, it is used for private purposes, and is not given away.
For the full text of the Canadian copyright reform bill C-11 please see:
(IE: the bill finally legalizing activities like time shifting with VCR/PVRs, something most Canadians assumed was already legal). With these new exceptions, Canada’s C-11 copyright law will become one of the most user-friendly, if not by far the most user-friendly, in the world.
MP3 Rocket strongly supports these changes which reflect reality and balance the interests of creators of content, rights-holders interests, and consumer use.
In the USA MP3 Rocket’s "time-shifting" technology also allows users to record Internet broadcasts the same way TiVo records live TV for personal non-commercial uses. The time-shifting technology allows users to view user created content at a more convenient time, and therefore protecting users by the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark ruling in Sony Corp. v. Universal City Studios, 464 U.S. 417 (1984) No. 81-1687, better known as the "Betamax case." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Corp._of_America_v._Universal_City_Studios,_Inc.
