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).

Rehearing Robertson-Globe

By Op-Ed Editor | April 11, 2006

Last December the Supreme Court of Canada heard the Heather Robertson-led class action case against the Globe & Mail for copyright infringement, and a ruling was expected this spring. Essentially, the Globe bought first-serial rights, then kept selling the material on a permanent basis without permission or payment. (Somehow, this has not been an open-and-shut case.)

Now the Court will rehear the case, because they have a new judge, Morris Rothstein, and they want him to be part of it. Rothstein is an IP law veteran.
