What if We Treated Election Law like Copyright?

Russell McOrmond has a clever post contrasting the responses to election law violations with proposed reforms to copyright infringement.


  1. Nice. Thanks, Russell.


  2. I’d like to see
    this done more often. I often see a lot of comparisons with respect to the gun laws in Canada, and about how one needs to register a car therefore one should have to register a long gun (I am differentiating as almost no one, not even the current government, has suggested that the handgun registry be abolished).

    For instance, the potential to have your ex-spouse, in a nasty divorce, refuse to allow you to renew your drivers license, or you lose your job, and therefore the license renewal is refused and all cars registered in your name are confiscated without compensation, even if there is other licensed drivers in the house.
