It seems to be a mirror of what's done in the U.S. Good for companies but I don't see any benefits to the actual artists and performers on this one. Not tampering with Digital Locks to copy something you purchased well...I for one hope they introduce labelling to that fact on CDs DVDs etc that use it so I can avoid buying them, and hopefully many others take that route so the whole issue is brought down dead. Funny, I have a few books on the coffee tableI purchased that anyone can pick up and read and take anywhere they like. Seems simple.

They can take any CD you've got lying on your table and listen to it anywhere they like too. And, can take any DVD you've got lying on the coffee table and watch that anywhere too.

You're right, it *is* simple.

Very true spot, but I have a lot of material that I watch on the old computer now. With the WDTV things and such. I do everything buy the book of course. If it's locked I won't be able to copy for personal use. That's all the issue I have with it. The good news is there are DVDs out their that have a digital copy included.

That helps.

Copyright! In a democracy, copyright should be made to serve the interests of all the people all the time. (It's original intention a few centuries ago was to subvert the stranglehold of a few, but in the last century those few learned how to subvert that model all over again back to their own favour). Bolstering a failed business model (especially following the death of laissez-faire casino capitalism two years, although no one seems to be remembering that trauma at the moment) with ad hoc legislation that serves the interests of those who already have (allowing them to have more) is surely misguided. Saying it is okay to copy but not okay to circumvent the digital-copy protection, has to be the best bit of sophistry in a very sophisticated age!

With Canada's minority parliament situation, we never know when the government will fall. Perhaps before this legislation is passed?
