Another salvo in the internet copyright wars

From Tuesday's (March 17th) National Post:

"A court case in British Columbia has the potential to drastically change the Canadian Internet landscape by making such search engines as Google and Yahoo! illegal.

A case brought against the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) by a small search engine for BitTorrent files, called ISOHunt Web Technologies Inc., is raising questions about whether search engines are liable for the sharing of copyright-protected content online."

Read all of "B.C. case could hamper net search"

I can just see the headline now - "Media nanny CRTC makes Google illegal; plunges Canada back into the information dark ages".
