The likely new advocate in the Liberal party for extending copyright protection 
is Diane Marleau, member for Sudbury,  who is an advocate for the drug 
industry. The Conservatives will likely be sympathetic to the issue.

But there is unlikely to be any movement on the copyright issue. Parliament is 
divided between four parties. Although the Conservatives have the most seats 
and will form the government they do not have a majority. They will have to 
tread very carefully to stay in power. No controversial issues will be 
introduced. But all Canadians who are interested in the issue should pay 
attention. Most members of parliament are unlikely to know much about the topic 
and something may sneak through.
