Canadian open source community upset over proposed copyright law

"On the other hand, DRM might provide a way to prevent rampant copying."

MIGHT? They aren't even sure that it will help preventing copying - it won't, that's common knowledge. The DRM systems that's in use today do MUCH more to annoy the legal user then it hinders the one who want to rip it. It's already illegal, so it can't be more or less legal, now can it?
