Basically the Harper government has scrapped the gun registry in favour of an iPod registry! It won’t be long before anyone with an MP3 player, a PVR, or other moden electronic device (pretty much everyone) is violating the copyright laws in Canada. We’ll see how aggressively our entertainment industry pursues their new powers over our freedoms. Before this law Canada had the lowest rates of piracy in the western world. This law will make criminals of us all and finally justify the entertainment industry’s demand that we buy more CD’s (and tapes, and eight-track cassettes).
