Personally, I'd add one more thing to this list
7. These rights cannot legally be taken away by content producers.
i.e. if somebody sells you a CD that you can't back up using
generally-available consumer devices, you get to sue them for that.
I think having a list of rights on a website somewhere that your average
Canadian can relate to (e.g. "this means that using your VCR to record
a show while you're out so you can watch it later is legal") and pointing
out that these rights are currently (a) not embodied in law and (b)
currently threatened, would be a very good thing. Then we would go on
to say "If this annoys you, here's what you can do..."
I believe that Michael Argast has started working along these lines.
