Bell Canada Wants Pirate Websites Blocked For Canadians

New submitter wierzpio writes: According to Rob Malcolmson, Bell Canada’s VP of regulatory affairs, Canada is a protected haven to web pirates and the one resolution is to create a federally mandated blacklist of pirate websites. Unlike the present blacklist in the U.K., Bell’s plan seems to contain no judicial oversight. “Engaging in extrajudicial attempts to block access to sites, I think, raises all kinds of Charter of Rights and Freedoms issues,” argues Michael Geist, a University of Ottawa professor and web legislation professional. Quebec additionally desires to dam websites. The province just lately offered a provincial law that will pressure web suppliers to dam customers’ get entry to to on-line playing websites now not authorized via the federal government. It argues the law is important to make sure web playing corporations deal with accountable gaming laws.
