Access Copyright applauds landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision
Thursday, June 29, 2017
Access Copyright applauds the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Google Inc. v. Equustek Solutions Inc. This ruling is a win for intellectual property owners including the writing and publishing community. The decision confirmed that Canadian courts have the power to order Internet intermediaries such as search engines to globally de-index websites that illegally sell the intellectual property of others. We hope that this ruling will support initiatives to reduce online infringement of content.
