Will Hyperlinking on the Internet Become Illegal?
Does a hyperlink constitute publication or a re-publication of allegedly defamatory content? This question will go before the Supreme Court of Canada and since the Internet is based on the use of hyperlinks, David Fewer, director of the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic at the University of Ottawa, states that "to import liability in those circumstances is to impose just a tremendous burden of liability on all participants in the internet."
TPTB will chip away at our rights until they get what they want -- censorship to the maximum extent...
There's a short passage in the Bible about censorship --
Luke 19:39-41 (King James Version)
The Pharisees speaking to Jesus:
39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
So if TPTB should in fact succeed in stifling everyone on this planet in every way they can, then I pray the very God of heaven will "play it as it lays" and the blowback from all that suppressed negative energy will cause the tectonic plates on *their* Occultic Ley-Lines to cry out and vertically shift in their faces the way they've shafted in ours all these years...
Internet Linking Rights Case To Go Before Supreme Court
Can posting a link to someone else’s website constitute defamation?
The Supreme Court of Canada has agreed to hear the case of a former Green Party campaign manager who says it does.
An internet law specialist says it’s an important case that everyone involved in the web will be watching closely.
The top court on Thursday granted Wayne Crookes leave to appeal a British Columbia ruling that went against him in 2008.
He had argued that when a Canadian website posted links to two U.S. websites that featured defamatory statements, it was the same as publishing defamatory material itself.
The website did not reproduce any of the disputed material, nor did it make any comment.
Is a hyperlink publication?...
