Google loses a high court case in Canada, forcing it to remove websites involved in a trademark and patent infringement case between two other battling parties. Except it has to do so worldwide, beyond Canada’s borders. (article)

1. is this patent infringement case valid outside Canada?
2. many readers, including Canadians, forget that Canada’s socialism help fund infrastructure, so everything starts from the State coffer. In the article it mentions China..well it isn’t the FTC.
