Michael Geist, professor of law at University of Ottawa, and editor of the BNA’s daily Internet Law News, has today pioneered a new approach to legal publishing in Canada. He has edited a major collection of essays on the future of copyright reform in Canada. And he convinced Jeff Miller at Irwin Law to release the book, In the Public Interest, under a Creative Commons license, which means that Chapters can be downloaded for personal use, free of charge. And Michael has given the royalties to Creative Commons.
