English Abstract

This article examines Professor Geist's reaction to Bill C-61 as manifested through his Facebook group "Facebook Fair for Copyright of Canada" and his blog. The author argues that Professor Geist's assessment of the Bill is unbalanced. In particular, he attempts to rebut eleven of the claims made by Professor Geist with the aim of mitigating any unwarranted adverse public opinion about the Bill that those claims may have engendered.
