Connie and Mark Fourniers are coming to Ottawa for a Motion in the Copyright lawsuit Mr. Richard Warman is bringing against them for using his own words in self-defense against other lawsuits he has brought against them.
I may have this completely backwards, but, to the best of my understanding, Mr. Warman accused the Fourniers of defaming him. The Fourniers used Warman’s words to prove the truth of their statements – since truth is still defense against the charge of defamation. Mr. Warman says that by using his words, they are infringing on his copyright on the intellectual property of the ideas he expressed. And he is suing them for it.
Yes, it sounds ludicrous – but that does not necessarily imply I have misunderstood the main point…
The Fourniers will be coming to Courtroom #2 on the seventh floor of the Sir Thomas D’Arcy McGee Building, 90 Sparks Street at 9:30 a.m. If you can, come show them your support.
