I found Bill C-2, recently proposed in Parliament, rather disquieting.
Links and discussion here:
It purports to be narrowly tailored to satellite television, but it looks
very much like the DMCA's "circumvention trafficking" provisions to me,
and it gives the Radio Inspectors a lot of new powers that look
worrisome. Has anyone else on our side of the fence looked at this Bill
or its predecessor in detail?
