More on Euro-Excellence v. Kraft

I’ve just done a short talk on the Supreme Court of Canada’s important Kraft decision (in which I was involved) for a LSUC CLE programme on February 28, 2008 in Toronto. Here’s my brief paper.

Here’s a bit of the bottom line in that paper.
The doors have now been opened to new issues such as copyright abuse or misuse, or the argument that copyright law cannot be used to limit free trade in articles not protected by copyright. Other arguments are also open. Current and future potential plaintiffs contemplating the use of copyright law to bar parallel imports of consumer products not protected by copyright may wish to be careful about what they wish for.
