The paper discusses how since the advent of the internet in the middle-1990s, the music and entertainment industries have been desperately trying to find ways of preventing consumers from downloading intellectual property for free; there has been a widespread preoccupation with online pirating and with violations of copyright and patent protections. The paper describes Bill C-61 and its history, the paper outlines what bill C-61 will do to private consumers; from there, time is devoted to exploring how Digital Rights Management software will assert itself if the measure is ever passed. Finally, and maybe most importantly, this paper outlines why the entertainment industry - especially the music - is so eager to see Bill C-61 implemented and why litigation is most likely going to skyrocket thanks to bill C-61.
From the Paper:"What is bill C-61? How does it hurt private consumers? What is the role of DRM software in all of this? Why does the entertainment industry support such a measure? Why is litigation more likely under this measure? How does "fair-use" come into the equation? Final thoughts/conclusions."
