Copyright Act Amendments and Rootkits

Copyright Act Amendments and Rootkits
Digital Copyright Canada, publication date: 09 November 2005
"Notice the chilling speculation that if you point out what Sony CD's do with technical details, publicly, you may be committing a criminal or civil offence. Were our amendments in place, it would be ditto, would it not? This is no longer hypothetical but a real situation that the law has to account for or plainly ought to: it should not place users in a position of helplessness with respect to their personal property ('Can't remove the DRM') or defend a trespass and tampering with their computer equipment ('Couldn't they think of this?')."
