It isn't that hard to understand if you can concentrate and have some reading comprehension.

Looks like the Canadian government has already given in to the pressure imposed by our neighbor down south.

While I am inclined to agree with you, the same can be said for the arguments of the lawyers who have decimated the intent of the copyright system as a whole. I urge concerned citizens to make an honest attempt at reading it. Here's some quotes that give you the jist of it:
Quote:
that copyright is not a natural right of authors, but an artificial concession made to them for the sake of progress.
Quote:
When the government buys something for the public, it acts on behalf of the public; its responsibility is to obtain the best possible deal—best for the public, not for the other party in the agreement.
Quote:
In the copyright bargain, the government spends our freedom instead of our money. Freedom is more precious than money, so government's responsibility to spend our freedom wisely and frugally is even greater than its responsibility to spend our money thus. Governments must never put the publishers' interests on a par with the public's freedom.
Quote:
Accepting the goal of maximizing publication rejects all these wiser, more advantageous bargains in advance—it dictates that the public must cede nearly all of its freedom to use published works, for just a little more publication.
Quote:
The “pirate” rhetoric is typically accepted because it so pervades the media that few people realize how radical it is. It is effective because if copying by the public is fundamentally illegitimate, we can never object to the publishers' demand that we surrender our freedom to do so. In other words, when the public is challenged to show why publishers should not receive some additional power, the most important reason of all—“We want to copy”—is disqualified in advance.
Quote:
The Supreme Court later heard a case that sought to overturn the law on the grounds that the retroactive extension fails to serve the Constitution's goal of promoting progress. The court responded by [avoiding] its responsibility to judge the question; on copyright, the Constitution requires only lip service.

Another law, passed in 1997, made it a felony to make sufficiently many copies of any published work, even if you give them away to friends just to be nice. Previously this was not a crime in the US at all.

An even worse law, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), was designed to bring back copy protection (which computer users detest) by making it a crime to break copy protection, or even publish information about how to break it. This law ought to be called the “Domination by Media Corporations Act” because it effectively offers publishers the chance to write their own copyright law. It says they can impose any restrictions whatsoever on the use of a work, and these restrictions take the force of law provided the work contains some sort of encryption or license manager to enforce them.

I'm with TekSavvy now, I got this notice in my email today.

Basically, I'm paying $40 a month for 300GB for Cable Internet, the speed is 18 mbps, but I've gotten as high as 30 mbps, and my average download is 2.2 MB/s.

A Rogers tech is the one who hooked it up, since their service is all through Rogers' cable lines. I was even able to use my old Rogers modem with their service.

Canadian folks here should look into a ISP called Acanac. They offer cable speeds like Teksavvy but with unlimited bandwidth and much cheaper prizes.
As far as copyright issues goes it had to get to Canada sooner or later

Also, if you unlock your phone and then decide to terminate your contract by paying the fee for ending the contract, and then using that same phone on another carrier, the original carrier can sue you for up to $5K. Cool stuff smile.gif

If you end the contract, you can ask the carrier to unlock the phone.
They HAVE to unlock it if the phone is yours. I don't remember the law name but it is basically aimed to increase competitiveness.
Now we are also able to end contract whenever we want without much penalties.

also free VPN.

however, their customer support is virtually non-exist. That's why you save money. There's no one to help you, no support line to call. You can send an e-mail, but they'll get back to you whenever they feel like it.

And to get the cheapest rate you pay up front. So even though you don't enter into a contract, you have to pay 1 year's service to get the cheapest rate.

For some, it may be the best, but for most it won't be.

P.S. Acanac is owned and operated by Distributel Inc. (who also offers cheaper, unlimited internet than Teksavvy).
