Organizations representing a broad cross section of Canadian industries, including software, book publishing and entertainment, congratulated the Canadian government for taking a strong stand on intellectual property rights protection as a party to the G8 statement, "Combating IPR Piracy and Counterfeiting."

The following statement was issued by the Canadian Alliance Against Software Theft (CAAST), Canadian Anti-Counterfeiting Network (CACN), Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA), Canadian Motion Picture Distributors Association (CMPDA), Canadian Music Publishers Association (CMPA), Canadian Publishers Council (CPC), Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA), Entertainment Software Association of Canada (ESAC) and Music Industries Association of Canada (MIAC):

We congratulate the Government of Canada for its strong and unqualified support for intellectual property rights as expressed in the joint statement of the G8 countries in St. Petersburg, Russia. We fully support all of the commitments and actions outlined by Canada and the other G8 countries.

Furthermore, we look forward to the Canadian government fulfilling these commitments as soon as possible in order to better protect intellectual property in the digital age. The introduction and passage of new federal copyright legislation will be a key step to fulfilling the commitments.
