Canada: Publishers' licence bid gets boost By CAROLINE ALPHONSO AND PAUL WALDIE, Globe and Mail.com, May 16, 2002 - Print Edition, Page B2 http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/ArticleNews/printarticle/gam/20020516 /RLAWW Federal court rules law books' copyright infringed by libraries' photocopying By CAROLINE ALPHONSO AND PAUL WALDIE Legal publishers hope they can use a recent federal court ruling to stop law libraries across the country from photocopying and charging fees for parts of law books without a licence agreement. In a 132-page decision released on Tuesday, the Federal Court of Appeal said the Law Society of Upper Canada -- the governing body of Ontario lawyers -- had infringed copyrights of three legal publishers by selling their work without a licence. The publishers included CCH Canadian Ltd., Canada Law Books Inc. and Carswell, a division of Thomson Canada Ltd. "I expect that this ruling will be a wake-up call to anyone who is infringing on copyright," Ian Rhind, president of CCH Canadian, said yesterday. Noted in DIGITAL-COPYRIGHT Digest 92
