There is NO SOPA like changes proposed to C-11. That is just fear mongering now that SOPA was defeated in the US, the bad evil Conservatives are going to do it in Canada instead.

None of the changes in C-11 to the Copyright Act are new, the provisions are in other laws (such as the Criminal Code) already. We are adding them to the Copyright Act to comply with our international agreements on WIPO, which was signed under the Liberals, but this does not go near as far as the US did with their DMCA (for them to comply to WIPO), nor is it anywhere near SOPA.
