geist-michael-uoo-120.jpgWe love Michael Geist, who disguises himself as a professor at the University of Ottawa by day but spend his free time as Captain Digitastic, P2P freedom fighter and copyright crusader!

Having launched a Facebook Group to handle the copyright issue, Geist recently launched, an automated way to choose the companies you don’t want to hear from. The site will then notify said companies’ do-not-call lists. This is a stopgap measure to deal with Canada’s crappy existing legislation, Bill C-37.

Shark Tales tried to follow up with Geist for an in-depth interview about iOptOut, but we’re thinking we should probably do it in person. After all, it’s not like we’re the Globe and Mail.
