The Conference Board of Canada – Insights You Can't Count On

On May 25 Michael Geist pointed out that the Conference Board of Canada committed copyright infringement in their report Intellectual Property Rights in the Digital Economy. In response the Conference Board denied plagiarism, and stated that they “Stood behind their findings”.

And then, the Conference Board issued a press release withdrawing three reports! What is going on here? That’s what the CBC, the Vancouver Sun, the Montreal Gazette, MacLeans Magazine, Mediacaster, Techdirt, and Georgia Straight all would like to know.

Is the Conference Board of Canada now a subsidiary of foreign corporations? If so, it should state so, not pretend to be a part of Canada.
