Commentary by Stephen Downes

Finally. Legislation addressing a real internet problem, not the fake problems about (so-called) piracy lobbyists from south of the border keep bringing to government committees. As of right now I have 3077 spam messages in my email reader, which I very much don't want, and which are filled with hoaxes, scams, phishing attempts, and some vile vile content. And I do not have even one illegal download on my computer. And that's typical of the vast majority of Canadians. And it is that reality that Canadian legislation should reflect.
