Is this Feminism? Murphy and more. Pioneering Sex Worker Advocacy on Connecticut

this is a great piece against abolitionist journalists and shows alot about our resident blogger meghan murphy.

Judge adjourns case copyright trolling case until January.

An attempt by U.S.-based Voltage pictures to force ISP Teksavvy to hand over thousands of its customers' names has been adjourned until next month.

This is a very interesting story, not only because it seems like a case of a copyright troll trying to thwart the spirit of Bill C-11 (which intended for ISPs to pass on warnings) but because of the obvious privacy issues.

A canadian consulting firm, Canipre, has been collecting data on downloaders for the past six months, and claims to have files on "a million" Canadian ISP addresses. They got a judgment in mid-november against three ISPs, securing an order for them to hand over 50 subscribers' personal information.

PEI story looking for National Coverage (who isn't!)

PEI has experienced a watershed event this passed weekend and protesters are looking for ways to get this story some National visibility. Any ideas would be appreciated.  For over a year folks have been opposing an Atlantic Gateway project, to reroute a section of our Trans Canada Highway. The project is rife with accusations of patronage, the gov't refuses to release the safety statistics upon which it built it's case for this project, our gov't is deep in debt and continues to mispend, and this past weekend protesters were forceably removed by police when they decided to peacefully occupy the public land on which the work was proceeding. Here are some links if anyone wants to see a glimpse. Ideas on how to boost national coverage greatly appreciated.
