"Internet ruling that could 'break the web' among Supreme Court dockets": Janice Tibbetts, justice and public safety reporter for Postmedia News (formerly known as Canwest), has an article that begins, "In its first direct look at the legal rules governing the Internet, the Supreme Court of Canada will consider this fall whether the common practice of hyperlinking can expose a writer to a lawsuit. The nine-member bench will also consider whether you can consent to sex when you're voluntarily choked unconscious and whether the public has the right to know about the daily comings and goings of the prime minister.
