In return the public wins the right to be sued for up to $500 per violation when illegal copies are made solely for private use. While that may seem more lenient than say the RIAA judgements agains US file sharers, keep in mind those violations would actually fall into the $20,000 category. Private use would include things like copying a protected CD to your own music server which can only be accessed within your house.
The Canadian Music Creators Coalition doesn't seem to feel they're winning either. The group was formed to give Canadian artists a voice in copyright policy. Safwan Javed, CMCC member and drummer for Wide Mouth Mason described the proposal as "all locks and lawsuits." He also said “Suing fans won’t make it 1992 again. It’s a new world for the music business and this is an old approach.”
win win? there is no win here for consumers until you treat consumer piracy IE not for profit piracy as less than a mister minor and small fines of no more than 500$ USD its nothign but a loss for the consumer and a crutch for the industry to lean on.
IMO shearing falls under the umbrella of private use its meant to be used for private archiving and such as long as there is no profit made there is no harm done, by bullying the public to only be "safe" when you buy retail is a joke and dose nothing to protect the consumer from profiteering and greed.
This is not a middle ground but the trenches the industry can pee in.
