BC Supreme Court: Linking is not republication

Michael Geist directs our attention to yesterday’s decision of Crookes v. Wikimedia Foundation Inc.,2008 BCSC 1424, where the BC Supreme Court ruled that online linking to allegedly defamatory materials does not amount to republication.

Barbara at law.librarians also points us to an article at international law firm Pinsent Mason's blog Out-Law, which discusses the Crookes decision and how other countries have dealt with similar cases.
