Bill C-30 ... Awful Access (especially for ISPs)

Mark Jeftovic, CEO of the Canadian company EasyDNS, calls Bill C-30 one of the worst legislative proposals ever tabled and "what I think is quite frankly, an effort to 'keep a lid' on the Internet."

When I read SOPA, and PIPA I had a textdoc open to which I cut-and-pasted various sections of note, in each case I had maybe a half dozen passages which I tagged with brief comments such as "troubling", "overly broad" or "slippery slope".

When I finished reading C-30 I had 23 sections of notes, with comments like "wtf?", "surely, they jest", and "omfg". It is nothing less than a framework to enable unfettered state access into all domestic network communications (except for banks, who are exempt), total unwavering compliance from all internet providers, and penalties for non-compliance which seem to occur without due process.
