Salna v. Voltage Pictures, LLC

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.

Involved fees earner: Ken Clark – Aird & Berlis LLP; Lawrence Veregin – Aird & Berlis LLP;
