Canada deems P2P downloading legal

well, it's a step in the right direction, although I can't help but be struck by the irony of how this echoes American efforts to legalize buying pharmaceutical drugs from Canada: the US congress doesn't want to bargain w drug manufacturers for lower prices, but is set to look the other way if Americans take advantage of another country's efforts to bargain w drug companies. Likewise, in Canada it's ok to download music from elsewhere(such as from the US, where most P2P activity originates), just not ok to upload it...
