Voltage Pictures Successful in Court of Appeal Decision

Overview

The Federal Court of Appeal released its decision regarding Voltage Pictures’, a movie production company, certification of a reverse class action for pursuing copyright infringement claims. Voltage Pictures sought certification of its claim as a class action against anonymous people who unlawfully distributed copies of its movies online. Voltage Pictures successfully argued that a reverse class action is a fair, efficient and manageable method of advancing the claim where there are multiple respondents for low-valued claims. 

Aird & Berlis represented Voltage Pictures in the appeal with a team including Ken Clark and Lawrence Veregin.
