    How can I remove the new Canadian copyright? This was came in the red box and it says, "CANADIAN CONSUMER RIGHTS AT RISK - Click here to speak our copyright." So it was on the top of the GBAtemp logo.

    So is there way to remove this?

    I'm fairly sure that this bar is only visible to Canadian members because I've yet to see it.

    Do you have an ad blocker? If you do, you might be able to stop the bar from showing up.

    I don't consider this a world problem becuase this issue is about Canadian copyright law becoming more strict like America's. I have already sent out four letters to the government via my name and the others living with me. I hope this doesn't get passed... [​IMG]

    ahhhh, now I understand. Well I don't know if anybody from other countries can simply write a letter to our government, I think that would be irrelevant. But still hope it doesn't get passed xD.
