  1. Looks suspiciously like progress!  ‘Grats Canada.

    Good on the public performance in schools, that has always seemed a silly licensing cost to me. It does not cost a lot, but it can be a hassle and burden to underfunded schools.

    Bad on the DMCA-style locks. Crazy that all your fair use rights go out the window just because someone puts a digital lock on the content.

    Well, certainly Canada’s copyright laws needed to do some catching up. I’ll wait to see what the unforeseen impacts of these changes will be. 

    Yes, boo on digital locks, but I suspect digital locks will eventually become a sort of humorous historical footnote.

    No worries about the locks – that’s unenforceable in any real way.
