Lang Michener InBrief Spring 2009


In This Issue

LAW NOTES discuss a number of topics

including the fiduciary duty of directors,

shareholder approval and new Internet

domains that can be used to provide customers,

colleagues and family with important

information. Also, a cooling-off period has

worked its way into employment law; a note

about acceptable tax-avoidance; another

about the Vetrovec warning; and a judicial

finding about “Java.” In the labour arena, the

courts have again shown themselves to be

supportive of members against their unions.

The full-length articles also take us into the

Internet world to discuss new generic top-level domains, besides .com, .net and .org. The new

executive compensation disclosure rules are

reviewed. James Musgrove canvasses cooperative

bidding. There is a discussion about

severance payouts that may be too generous,

and an article on the importance of being

earnest in insurance matters. The next great

business trend from south of the border is considered,

as is the U.S. ban on naked shortselling

and Canadian fallout. Limitations on

privilege, licences “as property,” new litigation

rules, and the business cost of a disabilities

statute are among the other topics.

Some quirky logic and QWERTY history

in Brief Life Bites; then your Letters and

Comments, and a little bit about us.
