Hi Gang

I just want to make this one quick comment.

Is DRM digital locks really just "Trusted Computing" with a new face?

Will DRM digital locks morph into the "Trusted Computing" model?

I read via Groklaw in the Comes Vs. Microsoft files, that MS mode of operation is to get others to do their battles for them. 

Pushing this point of view with documentation may be enough to get some MP's to take a second look at this.

More on this after my operation.

Hi fellow Canadians,

Rather than continue the previous thread about becoming a criminal I though I would try to create a more focussed thread on the details of bill C-32 in hopes that we can collaborate on the actual meaning.

I urge people to read the proposed changes either directly at http://www2.parl.gc.ca/HousePublications/Publication.aspx?DocId=4580265, or read the annotated version at http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/5088/125/.

To keep this thread coherent it would be great if posters read the relevant sections before posting.
