Acts relating to imported copies of computer programs

             (1)  In an action by a plaintiff for infringement of copyright described in section 37 or 38:

                     (a)  relating to the plaintiff's copyright in a literary work that is a computer program; and

                     (b)  involving an article that has embodied in it a copy of the program;

it must be presumed, unless the defendant proves otherwise, that the copy is not a non-infringing copy so far as it relates to the plaintiff's copyright.

             (2)  The definition of article in section 38 does not affect this section.
