Aird & Berlis represented Voltage Pictures in the appeal.
On September 8, 2021, the Federal Court of Appeal released its decision regarding certification of a reverse class action for pursuing copyright infringement claims.
The Court overturned the earlier Federal Court decision.
Voltage Pictures sought certification of its claim as a class action against anonymous people who unlawfully distributed copies of its movies online.
Voltage Pictures successfully argued that a reverse class action is a fair, efficient and manageable method of advancing the claim where there are multiple respondents for low-valued claims.
The Aird & Berlis team comprised of Ken Clark (Picture) and Lawrence Veregin.
