Join us on Tuesday, June 22 at 11:00 a.m. EDT for a Lunch and Learn Webinar titled Historical Legal Reports from the Law Library of Congress.

The Law Library has authored thousands of reports from the 1940s to the present and recently began a multi-year effort to digitize and publish some of our previously unreleased historical reports in order to make them fully accessible to researchers and other members of the public. Since early 2020, nearly 1,600 digitized and born-digital historical reports have been released online. This webinar will discuss the process for inventorying, processing, and publishing these reports, as well as the recent launch of the Law Library’s second crowdsourcing campaign with By The People, entitled Historical Legal Reports from the Law Library of Congress.

This webinar will be presented by Senior Legal Information Specialist, Stephen Mayeaux; Archiving Technician, Jonathan Donovan; and 2021 Junior Fellow, Michael Mellifera

A Progress Report on Licensing Copyright Against Itself
From slaw.ca

In my coverage of intellectual property issues in scholarly publishing, I have made passing reference in this column to my work with the Public Knowledge Project (PKP). It represents my more practical and applied efforts to address the intellectual property issues that trouble scholarly publishing. From this perspective, what PKP has been doing for more than two decades now is to test various ways in which copyright can better serve research and scholarship. This turns out to be largely about redirecting copyright against itself.

What this has meant in practice is that PKP develops software for online scholarly publishing platforms . . . [more]

The Internet, it is proverbially thought, lives forever.A That is, until jurisdictions around the world started to develop the “right to be forgotten.”

In 2017, a complaint was made to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada that Google violates the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents ActA (PIPEDA), by displaying links to news articles with personal and sensitive information about him.

Expedited Decision-Making in Parenting Coordination
From slaw.ca

Parenting coordination has two primary functions, one legal and the other psychosocial. The legal side of parenting coordination revolves around the implementation of parenting plans, resolving disagreements about their interpretation, dealing with unforeseen circumstances and facilitating a reasonable degree of compliance. The psychosocial side involves a cluster of less tangible objectives, including working with parents to improve their communication and dispute resolution skills, helping them recognize and prioritize the childrenas interests, and reducing the childrenas exposure to their conflict. The legal side has the narrow, mechanical purpose of resolving parenting disputes as they arise; the psychosocial side has the broader, . . . [more]

Cheesed Off Employee Loses Wrongful Dismissal Appeal
From slaw.ca

Written by Daniel Standing, LL.B., Editor, First Reference

Dismissal for cause is frequently characterized as capital punishment in the employment realm. As a drastic solution, one would presume that an employer would only terminate a worker’s employment for good reason and with a firm sense of an employee’s wrongful conduct. A recent decision of the Manitoba Court of Appeal, McCallum v Saputo, 2021 MBCA 62 (CanLII), indicates that an employer’s position is not necessarily compromised if it fails to investigate suspected wrongdoing before dismissing an employee. The case stands for the principle that the employer does not have a . . . [more]

Bad Faith Abounds at Landlord Tenants Tribunal

Over 6 months after many landlords in Ontario claimed that some tenants were using the pandemic as an excuse to not pay rent, it’s becoming increasingly clear that many landlords themselves are using these circumstances to violate the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006.

The Landlord Tenant Board (LTB) has been described as “chaos,” as early as late 2020, and the circumstances since that time have not improved. The province’s Digital First StrategyA was intended to save money and improve efficiencies, and probably works best in court proceedings where all the parties are represented.
