You've likely read some of my articles on copyright and the fact that Canada has been pressured to adopt US-style DMCA-like law despite the fact that we don't have the constituional checks and balances that the US has.
I've also decried some of the sellout of Canadian politicians on Digital Rights Management (DRM) and the technological damage it does.
Now, we have the US telling us that, despite our bent-over-backwards stance on kowtowing to their big-business-lead legal hoopla, Canadian products won't be allowed to be included in anything that gets US government stimulus dollars!
Mr. Obama - either recognize that Canada is a kissing cousin to the US or keep your mucky hands off our law and away from our politicians. You can't have it both ways.
