I am very pleased to announce that the CILRP underwent some major changes over the weekend. The key changes include:

1. A new, more modern look.

2. A new Canadian Internet news section on the main page. As you know, the Canadian and International technology press have been covering Canadian Internet law issues with increased interest in recent months. The CILRP will now feature links to the most recent stories appearing in the national and international media with a Canadian focus. I will try to update the selections every day or as time permits.

3. Several new topic sections including -

- competition law

- electronic cash

- gambling

- internet telephony

The internet telephony section may be of particular interest as it includes links to many CRTC rulings on the issue.

4. A new "What's New" section that will feature a Web version of the regular email updates.

5. A considerable infusion of new content including new caselaw (the spam and domain name cases from last week), conferences, articles, legislation (links to all available provincial privacy laws), and more. A reminder that the CILRP-Update list will continue to provide semi-regular updates on recent additions to the site.
