Canada is getting more than a slap on the wrist for lax laws when in comes to movie piracy... Warner Brothers will no longer show advance movie screenings in the country. The claim is that Canada is the 'main source for most of the world's film piracy' due to leniency when it comes to allowing recording during big screen showings.
Implications - The ban doesn't extend to press screenings, but everything else is fair game when it comes to enforcing this idea. This affects movies from Warner Independent Pictures and Warner Pros. Pictures. Piracy has always been an issue and now it looks like something is to be done about it. How effective it will be remains to be seen.
