When Parliament was prorogued, a number of technology-related bills died on the order paper. These bills, which relate to spam and spyware (Bill C-27), new investigative powers for law enforcement (Bill C-46), new obligations on telecommunication providers to assist law enforcement (Bill C-47), and child pornography reporting by Internet service providers (Bill C-58), will have to be reintroduced when Parliament reconvenes in March.

Also anticipated in the next session of Parliament is the government's next stab at a copyright bill.
