Of possible interest for the TAG work on copyright (and for other reasons 
too) -- from Slashdot [1], referencing Michael Geist:

    /An anonymous reader writes/:

    /"Last week, a Canadian Supreme Court decision attracted attention
    <http://entertainment.slashdot.org/story/12/07/12/1915212/canadas-supreme-court-strikes-down-copyright-fees-on-music-video>
    [2] for reduced copyright fees for music and video. Michael Geist has a
    detailed analysis that concludes there are two bigger, long term
    effects. First, Canada has effectively now adopted fair use
    <http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/6589/125/>. Second, the
    Supreme Court has made technological neutrality a foundational
    principle <http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/6592/125/> of
    Canadian copyright. The technological neutrality principle could have
    an enormous long-term impact on Canadian copyright, posing a threat to
    some copyright collective tariff proposals and to the newly enacted
    digital lock rules."/
