Bell Canada v. Adwokat, 2023 FCA 106


Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:

We have before us two matters: a motion by the appellants to adduce additional evidence and an appeal from the sentence for contempt imposed by the Federal Court in Bell Canada v. Red Rhino Entertainment Inc., 2021 FC 895. In their appeal, the appellants seek to have this Court increase the fine imposed by the Federal Court. In the judgment under appeal, the Federal Court sentenced the respondents to a fine of $40,000.00, for which they were jointly and severally liable, for violations of an interlocutory injunction that prohibited the sale of devices that the appellants claim were used to breach their copyright in television programs they broadcast. For the reasons that follow, I would dismiss both the motion and the appeal, with costs.
