From Bananas to Brazil

Reuters reports that Brazil, having just won a trade-dispute over cotton against the USA, may follow the Antigua lead and cross retaliate on copyright protected U.S. films or computer games.

This technique started with Ecuador and bananas in 2000, and got really serious with Antigua and online gambling in 2007.

This could get really interesting.

And its also interesting that countries like Antigua, Israel, New Zealand and Brazil can challenge American copyright interests and the American government itself.

That seems to be something that the Canadian Government, still a G-8 member, does not wish to do.
