New Study Says DRM Violates Canadian Privacy Laws

Canda_flag A new study says that the DRM used to "protect" music and software downloads violates Canadian privacy laws.

The study which was published by the University of Ottawa's Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic showed that DRM is being used to "collect, use and discloseDrm_anti_wall consumers' personal information for secondary purposes" without giving the consumer real notice or the opportunity to opt-out of DRM collection.

iTunes was one of the examples used in the study but it seems that any download with DRM attached would also violate Canadian law.
