The 2017 IT.CAN 21st Annual Conference is taking place on October 23–24, at the St. Andrew’s Club and Conference Centre 150 King St. West, 16th Floor, Toronto.

I will participate on a panel entitled “Legal Control of Internet Content: Who Decides and What is the Impact?” with co-panelists Curt Howard, Head of Legal, Google Canada and Barry Sookman, McCarthy Tétrault LLP, which panel will be moderated by Peter Ruby, Goodmans LLP.

We will discuss the following issues:

  • In what circumstances can non-parties to a dispute be ordered by a Canadian court to take-down Internet content?
  • What are the business and privacy implications of Google Inc. v. Equustek Solutions and the Globe24 decisions for: – Internet users – Internet intermediaries – Those affected by a wrong committed over the Internet?
  • In what circumstances can Canadian authorities regulate business activity on the Internet?
  • Policy implications of Canadian courts and regulators controlling Internet players outside Canada
  • Practical implications: – to Canadians seeking the intervention of Canadian courts and regulators? – for non-Canadians?
  • Is there a Canadian right to be forgotten?
