Weekly Meeting - Michael Geist - Law and the Internet

John Norton gave Professor Michael Geist a smashing introduction which was fitting for his knowledge of "why the internet is transforming the law". Michael spoke about the changes that the internet has brought upon us and spoke of the realities including: the loss of control, no central control of information, the issue of music piracy, the loss of privacy for consumers and businesses, and the issue of cyberlibel and slander which renders some laws obsolete. A clear, concise presentation albeit done in such a short window of time.
