Is it legal to transfer large amounts of encrypted data peer to peer in Canada?
- I transfer data from my friend PC in another country.
- The data is encrypted, so nobody can ever know which data it is.
An article from 2006 states the following:
In Canada, the Copyright Act protects all works and prohibits the confection of copies or the communication to the public without authorization. Thus, as a general rule, Internet file-sharing is illegal.
Is it true? Is it about any file-sharing or only for copyrighted works? Does it mean that file-transfer is also illegal because I don't share I copy onto my PC.
