The BC Court of Appeal in Douez v. Facebook, Inc., 2015 BCCA 279 (CanLII) had reviewed the question of whether the Facebook terms (which apply California law) should be enforced in Canada or whether they should give way to local B.C. law. The appeal court reversed the trail judge and decided that the Facebook’s forum selection clause should be enforced.
Facebook now joins Google, whose own internet jurisdiction is also going up to the Supreme Court of Canada this year.
These are two cases to watch.
