Once again, our beloved conservative government is trying to turn me into a criminal for simply copying all my (legally purchased) Blu-Ray and DVD movies to a hard drive for convenience. In fact, the proposed law very specifically makes it clear that reproduction for private purposes is legal only if “the individual, in order to make the reproduction, did not circumvent, as defined in section 41, a technological protection measure, as defined in that section, or cause one to be circumvented”.
Looks like I will be a lawbreaker. Or worse, I am a radical extremist, according to our beloved government’s heritage minister.
Meanwhile, the score is Disney: 1, people of Canada: 0, courtesy of the Conservative Party.
Message to Stephen Harper: let me know when you came back to your senses so that I can vote conservative again.
