Are the New Digital Locks Rules Unconstitutional in Canada?

Yes, we have a new copyright bill that includes provisions involving digital locks.  Don’t even THINK of trying to crack DRM on a DVD, no matter what you’re motivation!

But are these new locks unconstitutional?  Possibly.

By the way, there are many in the music industry who hate Michael Geist for the positions he takes on copyright.  Me?  I like his contrarian attitude and how he pokes people with sharp sticks.  It’s good for debate.
