Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-Commerce Law from the University of Ottawa, presented an information-packed, fast-paced presentation on the history of Canadian copyright law and the need for change during the spring lecture series for Project Open Source Open Access at the University of Toronto on Feb. 10, 2005. His speech and the Q&A that followed are available online (requires QuickTime). It is worth listening to (watching), even if your not Canadian, in order to hear how people think about copyright in relation to privacy rights, etc.
