Decisions provide ammunition to broadcasters fighting online piracy (CA)

Two recent Federal Court decisions are a boost for traditional broadcasters fighting online piracy, Toronto intellectual property litigator Kevin Fisher tells

In one case, a Federal Court judge found the defendant in contempt of court for breaching a previous injunction that prevented him from marketing and selling illicit streaming devices, commonly known as media players.

And in the other — which was related as it was the main source of the software being used on the illicit streaming devices — the Federal Court of Appeal reinstated an injunction against the operator of a website allegedly providing the infringing “add-on” software that allows these media players to access copyrighted material.

Fisher, who often acts for the holders of broadcast rights when their copyright is violated online, says both decisions will bolster injunction requests made on behalf of clients against service providers who enable this type of infringement.
