Privacy Commissioner of Canada Blogging on C-61

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has posted two entries on the C-61, noting the privacy implications of the bill.


  1. Goo to see
    That the Privacy Commissioner is raising, in particular, the fact that the DRM mechanisms that have been used in the past can cause privacy issues. While as I understand it the bill contains permission to remove DRM that breaches privacy regulations, doesn’t the other part of the bill that make holding DRM removal software and equipment illegal effectively negate that permission?

    The saving grace in all of this? Since Canada is such a small market, I can’t see the publishers setting up a different DRM setup for Canada.
