In my brief to C-11 committee and in recent presentations I have suggested people compare the attitudes between copyright and technology property rights. Each of these rights have rightsholders who control various activities relating to their property, and each have people infringing those rights by ignoring that control.
One person who believes copyright should be stronger, but pretty much denies the existence of IT property rights is John Degen. He appeared before the Senate committee studying C-11 yesterday. In a few tweets he suggested that as part of the testimony he held up his Kobo and said that he didn't care that the content or tech was locked.
In other words, he chose to waive his right to hold the keys to his property (the Kobo). He personally didn't feel the need to control what software would be installed on it.
