Canada’s Intellectual Property Law Firm

Successfully represented Nintendo in an application for trademark infringement, copyright infringement and circumvention of technological protection measures (TPMs). This case was the first time that any court had considered and applied the anti-circumvention provisions of the Copyright Act. Apart from broadly interpreting the prohibitions against circumvention, the Federal Court awarded Nintendo a precedent setting $11,700,000 in damages for copyright infringement and circumvention of TPMs, as well as $1,000,000 in punitive damages.
