You Got Served: Internet Law Has Undergone a New Change with BC Court Allowing Brian Burke to Sue Bloggers Online

By |2013-05-29T16:57:20-04:00May 29th, 2013|

Brian Burke has recently gone on a rampage and now has 18 people on his "hit list," twenty-year-old Zack Bradley being numero uno on that list. In order to sue people with anonymous profiles, this permission needed to be granted as traditionally, in order to be served with a lawsuit someone had to physically present a piece of paper to that person. However, without a physical address this was previously physically impossible to do.

Toronto Maple Leafs Have Grown in Popularity by Using Social Media and Online Advertising

By |2013-05-08T17:10:16-04:00May 8th, 2013|

nhl_torIn a recent article in Metro news, it was reported that Google searches for the Maple Leafs increased by a whopping 300% since the playoffs. We wondered how the playoffs affected fan engagement on social media channels. 
As I’m writing this article, the hashtag #timandsidleafs is ranking as the first Canadian trending topic on Twitter. This big wave was created by the co-hosts of the afternoon show on Sportsnet 590 The FAN, Tim and Sid, who were running a contest to give away tickets for a Toronto Maple Leafs game on Twitter. As a result, thousands of fans started using the hashtag mentioned above in their tweets whether they wanted to get the desirable tickets or just to  mock the competition and its impressive popularity.

Internet Law in Toronto, Libel, and ex-Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke v. Zack Bradley

By |2013-04-30T17:19:17-04:00April 30th, 2013|

Image courtesy of http://internetlaw.uslegal.com/ As the realm of Internet Law has been growing, though not nearly as fast as the Internet itself has, more and more people previously innocent are being brought to court for crimes that they are innocently unaware of. Take the case of first-year Carleton University journalism student Zack Bradley from Oshawa, who at age 20 is still a kid, though technically not a minor. He, like many sports fans, decided to rail on sports players and GMs alike, and apparently got on the bad side with ex-Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke. So, what's wrong with blogging and expressing a little freedom of speech? Apparently, a lot.
