I understand the Minister, Prentice, *did not* submit the legislation
thanks to widespread dissent. But there are meetings of the committee
as I write this -- it is very much going to see the light of day again.
So yes, this potato is hot-hot-hot. And we'd very much have things to
say about it -- but I'll leave that for others to sketch out. For the
time being, I'll just point to a few other players and sites, eh?
I should add that I watched the CBC's first torrent distro last night,
and got quite a laugh out of it! It (the torrent distro model) is a
'positive' story about the advantages of user rights -- new business
uses and technology models, etc..
