Subject: Canadian copyright reform
I was just reading about this whole "DMCA" thing, and I want you to note my strong objection. As a U.S. citizen, I cherish the simple rights that some overlook everyday, and I think that taking away free speech from Canadians is pure garbage. How would you like it if someone slapped a piece of duct tape over your mouth? I'm sure this is how many Canadians feel about this issue. I'm all for copyright laws, because they keep ideas in the hands of their rightful owners. But if there's one thing I'm against, it's censorship. Thank you for your time.
