Is the Conservative government angling to add an exemption to allow political parties to dodge copyright claims when compiling news clippings and TV footage to launch attack ads against their rivals?

Heritage Minister Shelly Glover said during question period Thursday that she wouldn't comment on "rumour or speculation," but hinted that the measure is under consideration.

"There is a public interest in ensuring that politicians are accountable for their actions and accountable for what they say in public settings," she told the House in response to a question from Liberal MP Ralph Goodale.
