Soon, you may get a letter from Chris Saybeck. It will probably be asking for $20, all because you downloaded “Bruno Mars -Just The Way You Are.m4a.” Saybeck is the  CEO of Rightscorp, an American company known for monetization services to artists and holders of copyrighted intellectual property, and he's coming north to tell Canadians that it is not okay to pirate music. And new federal legislation will be a big help.The proposed bill is S-4, the Digital Privacy Act. It was introduced by the Conservatives in the Senate and, to hear them tell it, it’s a boon for all of our privacy rights. The bill amends the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) to allow for an organization to “disclose personal information without the knowledge or consent of the individual,” in circumstances of fraud or “for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or a contravention of the laws of Canada or a province that has been, is being or is about to be committed.”
