When you read this report you'll utter, as I did, "Holy cow!" or words to that effect. "This report confirms that DRM is currently being used in the Canadian marketplace in ways that violate Canadian privacy laws." And really blatantly, too. "We observed tracking of usage habits, surfing habits, and technical data... we observed e-book software profiling individuals... A number of organizations used DRM to collect, use and disclose personal information for inappropriate purposes (e.g., Napster indiscriminately monitors its customers' communications to 'check for ...abusive language')... undisclosed communications to third parties..."
