Dr. Michael Geist. Bill-C10, Internet Regulation In Canada

Conversations With Canadians

Today I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Michael Geist. We had a very timely conversation on the topic of Bill C-10, the internet regulation bill that is currently being proposed by the Federal government.  To say this bill has its critics would be a bit of an understatement, and Professor Geist has been making noise about this bill for quite some time. On this episode we get into the implications of Bill C-10 on free expression, and a host of other issues pertaining to the way this bill could potentially impact the online experience of Canadian users and content creators. If you have not been paying attention to the debate surrounding Bill-C10, I suggest you start. This impacts everyone who users the internet in Canada. Dr. Michael Geist is a law professor at the University of Ottawa where he holds the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law and is a member of the Centre for Law, Technology and Society. He has obtained a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) degree from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Master of Laws (LL.M.) degrees from Cambridge University in the UK and Columbia Law School in New York, and a Doctorate in Law (J.S.D.) from Columbia Law School. Dr. Geist hosts a podcast called Law Bytes where he explores the intersection between law and technology and more.  Dr. Michael Geist Website - https://www.michaelgeist.ca/Please feel free to reach out to me and provide feedback at MikeRyanG1@gmail.com On Twitter @MikeRyanGOn Instagram  @Conversations_With_Canadians

Free speech and Bill C-10 with Michael Geist

Uncommons with Nate Erskine-Smith

What is the intent of Bill C-10 and can we deliver on that intent without limiting free speech? On this episode, Nate is joined by Michael Geist to discuss free speech issues around Bill C-10, why he has been opposed to the bill on other grounds as well, and how we should think about addressing illegal speech online in future legislation. Michael is a law professor and Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-Commerce Law at the University of Ottawa, and is a member of the Centre for Law, Technology and Society. He has written extensively about his objections to Bill C-10 on his blog here.On the issue of free speech, the government has repeatedly, albeit clumsily, said from the outset that it does not intend to regulate user generated content, and that the focus of the bill is to require Netflix, Spotify and other online undertakings to pay into the system of Canadian content creation as traditional broadcasters are required to do. What needs to happen is for the government to correct its misstep in communication and clarify the law through an amendment to properly exclude user generated content. Thankfully, the Minister has said recently that this is exactly his intention: we “want to make sure that the content that people upload on social media won’t be considered as programming under the Act and that it won’t be regulated by the CRTC. And that’s why we will be bringing forward another amendment that will make this crystal clear.”
