iTunes users in Canada and the United Kingdom will now be able to download and rent movies from Apple's online store.
Canadians will be able to choose from over 1,200 films such as "Juno," "I Am Legend," and "Cloverfield" from movie studios including 20th Century Fox, Paramount and Sony Pictures. More than 200 of the available titles for rent come in high definition.
Those in the UK will have a library of over 700 films, Apple said. The British rental catalog also features over 100 titles available in high definition.
This is the first big Apple online movie rollout after the USA, shared with the UK - hardly a pirate haven and, indeed, a leader in the EU.
This clearly suggests that Apple has little if any concern about any alleged inadequacies of current Canadian copyright law, which is apparently quite adequate to protect its interests and that of the studios.
And Apple just loves DRM and TPM, when it suits it.
One more reason why we don't need a Canadian DMCA ("CDMCA").
