Some not so Encouraging News out of Canada, where the bill to amalgamate the
National Archives and the Library of Canada moved one  step closer to law
 last week -- complete with controversial proposed changes to the Copyright
 Act that would extend copyright protection for  unpublished works for as
 long as 42 years after death.
What was supposed to be a simple housekeeping bill could turn into a
 political nightmare for the Liberals when the House resumes next fall now
 that committee members from both government and opposition sides of the
 table  are claiming that Parliamentary Secretary Carole-Marie Allard (Laval
 East, Que.) broke a promise to remove the contentious copyright changes at 
 clause-by-clause reading. .
