Libraries and Privacy Groups Speak Out on Copyright and DRM Threats to Privacy

The Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic at the University of Ottawa has made public a series of open letters to the Ministers of Canadian Heritage and Industry expressing the concerns of library associations, privacy experts and civil libertarians over "dangers to privacy posed by the extension of legal protection to 'digital rights management' (DRM) technology".

Among the letters are those written by Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Jennifer Stoddart, the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia, David Loukidelis, and Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner.
