What is the world coming to?

Found this on a comm I frequent, thought my Canadian buddies would be interested...

BILL C-11: SOPA'S LITTLE BROTHER
For the Canadians among us, meet Bill-C11 (formerly Bill C-32).
Bill-C-11 does a whole lot that SOPA did with a few extra twists you might not find in the Wikipedia write-up:

*Like your PVR? You can’t keep it under C-11.
*Like ripping CDs to your iPod? Say bye-bye.
*Hey, do you want to be able to unlock your $500 smartphone and take it to a provider less dedicated to violating your wallet? That won’t be allowed either.
*Did you get accused of internet piracy but no evidence has been presented and a trial date hasn’t even been set? Under C-11 your ISP will now be forced to terminate your internet access.
