Celebrating Internet Freedom Day: When the Internet Met Copyright

Today is Internet Freedom Day, a day to celebrate efforts to ensure an open and free Internet. Coming on the anniversary of the Wikipedia blackout that successfully stopped the Stop Online Piracy Act in the United States, it is worth thinking about the many successes (ACTA, Internet surveillance in Canada), failures (TPP, digital locks in Canadian copyright law), and tragedies (Aaron Swartz) that have occurred in the past year.

Last fall, I delivered a keynote address at the University of Saskatchewan for its Technology Week 2012 that focused on these issues. The talk was titled When the Internet Met Copyright and can be viewed via a stream here (sorry no embed available).
