Geophysical Service Incorporated v NWest Energy Corp, 2017 ABQB 232


Read full decision. Summary prepared by Alan Macek:

This is an appeal on a refusals motion in the context of an action for copyright infringement in seismic data (see for example 2016 ABQB 356). The questions at issue on this appeal relate to the identity of third parties which may have received the data at issue from one of the defendants. The questions were not ordered to be answered by the Court on the basis that each of the third parties that did access the material were governed by confidentiality agreements, the redacted terms of which were provided to the plaintiff, the number of third parties were known and the names were not material to the pleaded issues.
