I have no problem with DRM existing, per se, but I do have a problem
with it having legal weight. I think DRM is morally wrong, but
I wouldn't make it illegal if a company wants to try to make their
business model depend on it.
Would the treaty allow for your exception clause? I'm not sure.
I think it would be better for Canada to ignore the treaty than to
promote digital oppression.
