Copyright holds 70 years after the authors death. Why should decades old material be out of copyright?  In alot of cases the man or woman responsible is probably still alive....   That's like saying MASH should be free since its a few decades old
I don't work in IT, but when I want software it generally comes to my desk as a DVD. There are all sorts of non-tech reasons this could be, such as payment. Or it could be old software. Maybe it's just the specialized stuff I use.

My guess the reason for the recent increase is because as of a few years ago (5? Too lazy to check) you need a passport to get into Canada even by driving.  Not really a germane post, but either way.

A great democratic officespace for the future!   Wait, on second thought it sounds sort of communist ...
  Ignorance is not an excuse
I have no problem with people making fun of us Canadians, but no one here sounds like that! Maybe Newfoundland, but more often than not people doing "Canadian" accents end up sounding like Minnesotans !
Its more of a 'paraphrase' than an impression
