The Electronic Frontier Foundation has a pair of excellent posts on Bill C-11 and the dangers of the digital lock rules. The first focuses specifically on digital lock rules and the second on U.S. pressure on Canadian copyright reform.

Canada's historical attempts to find a solution to intellectual property protection less draconian than the US DCMA would seem to now be in great peril - judging by the measures proposed in bill C-11, which can only be described as Fascist.

I doubt that we will ever see the open and rational discussion necessary to re-define the very substance and worth of 'intellectual property' in the digital age - the core of this whole matter. Unless the value of IP includes a consideration of its worth to society as whole, (not just individual ownership rights), we'll never succeed at developing fair policy and regulations.
