    Red Hat founder speaks against Canada's copyright reform

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Lulu Inc. CEO Bob Young is a major voice in the open source software
    | industry, but according to him the entire community has been unjustifiably
    | ignored throughout the Canadian government's copyright reform initiatives.
    |
    | Last year, the Conservative government vowed to adopt copyright laws which
    | would make it illegal to modify or remove any device or software fitted with
    | a technical protection measures (TPMs). After months of hearsay and numerous
    | delays, the buzz on Parliament Hill now suggests a proposed copyright bill
    | from Industry Minister Jim Prentice is imminent.
    |
    | In the wake of these rumors -- which many industry activists have begun
    | referring to as the Canadian version of the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright
    | Act (DMCA) -- a new open source software alliance has added their name to the
    | lengthy list of opposition to the Industry Minister's soon-to-be-unveiled
    | legislation.
