Canada finally addressing copyright laws for ag equipment

The Canadian Parliament is finally addressing copyright laws for ag equipment, as mandated in the USMCA trade deal.

The legislation was put forth by a conservative MP in Saskatchewan and has support from all parties. It modernizes copyright laws for heavy equipment to allow short-line and specialty manufacturers to operate in sync with mainline platforms.
The sponsor says that Canada has not kept up with international trade partners and it is desperately needed to keep the small sector viable.
