All of that can't involve copy protection circumvention though (as I understand it). As noted in this document:
Quote:
Bill C-11 protects technological protection measures by making it an infringement of copyright to break, or “circumvent,” an access control lock. Also, certain new exceptions from copyright infringement for time-shifting and format-shifting will not apply if either an access-control or a copy-control lock is broken. This means that content distribution and software companies will have new legal tools (beyond contract terms) to effectively protect the creative content they produce and sell.
I wish people would have enough of a voice but I imagine that because this received royal assent recently (ish), it's going to take time to mount a legal challenge (which, like you, wish would happen).
