Supreme Court copyright ruling

Unless you're a legal eagle or copyright nerd Thursday's Supreme Court of Canada ruling, characterized as "an undisputed win for fair dealing that has positive implications for education and innovation, while striking a serious blow to copyright collectives such as Access Copyright," will likely fly way over your head as it did mine.
Blogger and topic expert Michael Geist has an unusually long posting here. He ends that "the big takeaway is that the Supreme Court has delivered a vision of copyright that emphasizes balance, user rights, and innovation."  Good news.
