What if ... YouTube were sued in Canada?

Jeremy deBeer, Assistant Professor at University of Ottawa in the Faculty of Law, has published an interesting "what if" speculation about the areas of Canadian law that would apply in a service like Google's YouTube was sued in Canada.

He ends with this important note:

To sum up, sites that host peer-produced content would be on very shaky ground under Canadian law. This is something that our policymakers must think about if and when proposed reforms are eventually reintroduced.
