Investigators beware! A license to investigate is not necessarily a license to fish.

This is the title of the forward to our just-published Hicks Morley Information and Privacy Post. If you follow this blog you’ll be familiar with most of the content, which we aggregate, edit down to size and index for convenience in order to create The Post. Please download a copy here.

This edition contains some of my favorites and most notables since August, including:

  • The Prince Edward Island decision –HZPC Americas Corp. – on conversion claims and intangible property
  • The Cheskes adoption disclosure decision, in which the Ontario Superior Court of Justice said that consensual disclosure is a principle of fundamental justice
  • A pair of decisions by the British Columbia IPC on the collection of personal information – the School District No. 75 decision on the psychometric profiling of employment candidates and the University of British Columbia decision on investigations into employee computer misuse
  • The Ontario Divisional Court’s holding in Kitchenam that the deemed undertaking rule protects against disclosure

We hope you enjoy!
