I am just thinking. The C-32 bill will also make it illegal
to unlock physical devices and do what you want with
them.

I.e. it would make it illegal to unlock an iPad and run 
your own OS on it, since it is illegal to circumvent a 
protection method (i.e. the locking of a device) and
the device itself is under copyright, therefore the
access to it is now an infringement of the new
bill.

Similar could be said to all kinds of other devices.
