Canadian Standards Association v. P.S. Knight Co. Ltd., 2018 FC 1081
Justice Barnes - 2018-10-29
Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:
This is a continuation of a motion by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) seeking an interlocutory injunction to prevent the Respondents, P.S. Knight Co. Ltd. and Gordon Knight, (collectively Knight or the Respondents), from further reproducing, selling or distributing the CSA’s 2018 edition of the Canadian Electrical Code (Code). The CSA says that the Code is an original work in which copyright subsists and which it owns. ... In my view, this dispute over the errata list did not go to the essence of the settlement agreement. Further good faith efforts to resolve the errata issue would probably have been successful; and if not, the Court could have done so on a better record. In the result, CSA’s motion for an interlocutory injunction is dismissed with costs payable to the Respondents.
