The Canadian government, after their last travesty of a DMCA-alike was shot down, are trying to do something even worse - a bill that abolishes space-shifting, device shifting (goodbye ipod!) fair use and parody exemptions.|
The House of Commons is back in session and, as I promised last month, the 30 Days of DRM project has now concluded. The postings remain accessible via the 30 Days of DRM page, the wiki, and a new PDF version that incorporates all postings into a single document.Check the list and if you're in Canada - or even not - speak up to their government before it's too late!
The project generated considerable commentary online and lots of email offline. The most frequently asked question provides reason for optimism as many people simply asked "what can I do?" I typically responded that the best starting point was to write to their local Member of Parliament. Upon reflection, there is more that can be done and to that end, I offer up 30 things you can do about the issues raised by the 30 days of DRM project.
