As it's become clear that the iPad is more of a "content delivery vehicle" than an interactive device (and there's nothing wrong with that), people are quickly discovering how regional licensing issues and copyright may hold the device back in some areas. Apparently, as the device gets ready to launch in Canada, there are concerns that there won't be very much content available for it. All that content that US companies rushed out to help "save" their businesses? Well, a lot of it isn't licensed in Canada, and so the store of content available up there is likely to be greatly limited.
