Stranely enouhg, it seems that the only person from Canada is the Moderater, the person who typed it, the person who it was intended for, and the people who see it are (in majority) not from Canada.

Does this extend to Forums based in Canada, or does it still cross the line?

It's not a Canadian produced item, so it would fall under law of where it's produced, meaning the rule book falls under UK law?

Canadian law is no different from anyone elses, copyright infingement is the same.

(notice how i capitalized America and not canada)

I'm Canadian, and even if it's something as petty as not capitalizing, I find it offensive, and take it as a sign of disrespect, far_shot.

Its an extract so its not really breaking copyright. If it was the full rule book then ok you've got problems and/or if large chunks have been taken from the book. Yet it doesn't have the full rules so this is borderline acceptable, but only just.
