Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:
The issue in the Appeal involved the interpretation of certain key terms of the Federal Court’s Model Protective Order which formed the basis of the Protective Order made in this case [see 2022 FC 1190]. ... The reasons for my costs order are set out below. ... In so concluding, I do not in any way purport to have provided the clarity that the profession is seeking, nor do I doubt that more opportunities will present themselves for my esteemed colleagues, especially those steeped in the study of Intellectual Property Law, to make further pronouncements on the appropriate interpretation and application of the Model Protective Order. The fact remains that the core issue of the underlying motion has implications for other litigants beyond the immediate parties. As such, I agree that some increased cost award over and above the mid-Column III amount is called for to reflect that Surewerx alone should not bear the burden of testing the terms within the Model Protective Order.
