In this case, the Plaintiff brought a motion to amend its statement of claim to clarify the relief sought, provide further particulars of the material facts supporting the claim, to plead and rely upon the Copyright Act and plead equitable ownership of copyright. The motion was opposed on the basis that a scheduling order required discoveries to be completed by the end of August. The Court held that the timing of the amendments were not prejudicial to the defendant. Furthermore, none of the proposed claims were untenable. Thus, the motion was allowed.
