Subject: Canadian Copyright Reform
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am appalled to hear that the Canadian government is considering legislation similar to the US's DMCA. Surely we can come up with something better than a law which has resulted in the indictment of a computer programmer for publishing an algorithm as has Dmitri Sklyarov.
What's next, a law against thought-crime?
