Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre v Charbonneau, 2016 BCSC 625

The BC Supreme Court has restrained the defendants from publishing the original version of their video entitled "Vancouver Aquarium Uncovered", ordering that only a modified version with 15 segments removed may be published. Those segments are alleged to be subject to copyright protection or were used in breach of contract.

In ordering the removal, the Court held that the questions relating to fair dealing were a matter for trial. This included the issue of whether there was a commercial purpose for the film, the defences of criticism or review, or whether the film was within the category of research or education.
