You may have heard a story about a Nova Scotia teen whose home was raided, electronics were confiscated and charges laid upon him for innocently downloading documents from a publicly accessible government website. It turns out some of the documents were actually private, but the government mistakenly made them available to the public.

Anyway, the charges have been dropped against the teen. His and his family’s electronics have not yet been returned to them though.
