ABSTRACT: This short paper introduces some of the recent conflict that has arisen between copyright and privacy, provides a basic overview of DRM technology, and sketches DRMâ€™s privacy implications, including a short discussion of the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act. This paper calls for increased awareness regarding DRM's privacy implications in light of the imminent potential for the Canadian government to provide legal protection for DRM.
