We at the CCC are committed to access to our creative works just as we are committed to copyright: we work for copyright legislation that ensures both. Here on our op-ed pages we will be posting opinion, commentary, links, and news of interest to creators and others engaged in copyright reform. Elsewhere, you'll find our archive of studies, handbooks and press releases. And while we're not currently hosting a discussion forum, comments sent to us may be posted or noted here (unless you ask us not to).

Heather Robertson at the Supreme Court

By Op-Ed Editor | December 5, 2005

Tuesday, December 6, 2005, Robertson v. Globe and Mail opens at the Supreme Court of Canada.

Years ago Heather Robertson sold first serial rights to a story to the Globe. The Globe appropriated the electronic rights without payment or permission and began offering them for sale on its digital services.

So simple a transgression has required a decade of legal action by a class action group representing all freelancers who have ever had their rights abused by their publishers. Heather keeps winning, but the delaying tactics never end. Finally it has reached the highest court.

Good luck Heather. More tomorrow.
