    Canadian parliament is to decide on a proposed law which is supposed to implement the World Intellectual Property Organisation's Copyright Treaty of 1996 in Canadian Law.
    Supposedly due to technical misunderstandings and/or influence from the usual pressure groups (read: Music/Motion Picture Industry), the Canadian implementation wil forbid caching of websites and allow any wilful trolls to sue anybody for caching of websites.

    Canadian intellectual property specialist and University of Ottawa professor Michael Geist explains what could happen if the law draft was to be adopted.
