   There is some interesting chatter on other forums that might be worth 
looking at, and participating in the comments.  Mr Corcoran is 
influential for that generation that still reads newspapers (which is 
most of our politicians), and those on the political "right" that are 
currently in government.  He is a good example of the type of 
technologically illiterate people within the content industry that are 
being used as powerful pawns in the "Copyfight".

In the order they were published:

Terence Corcoran: Copyright ­lockdown
http://opinion.financialpost.com/2012/03/13/terence-corcoran-copyright-%C2%ADlockdown/
    - Mr Corcoran's commentary on those of us who are rightfully 
disagreeing with the lockdown that was already in C-11 in the form of 
non-owner digital locks, as well as the SOPA type provisions that were 
threatened (but didn't yet get included in Canadian law).


Audio Podcast #129: Digitally Locked
http://searchengine.tvo.org/blog/search-engine-blog/audio-podcast-129-digitally-locked
   - audio blog by Jesse Brown interviewing Financial Post editor 
Terence Corcoran theoreticaly on digital locks.  There are some 
interesting ongoing discussion in comments.

Technological measures in a land of myth and a time of magic
http://c11.ca/5448
   - my longer blog reply to Jesse's interview, where I comment on 
whether I would agree with Mr Corcoran if there was actually some magic 
technology that worked the way he mistakenly thought technological 
measures did.
