From the Notice
The class action, which was filed in Quebec City and authorized on February 8, 2017 by the Quebec Court of Appeal, is intended to establish that Université Laval and its employees, as part of their teaching and research activities, infringed the patrimonial and moral rights recognized under the Copyright Act by reproducing copyrighted literary, dramatic and artistic works, making them available and communicating them to the public without permission from the copyright owners or their representatives, by failing to identify the creators of the work and by infringing the integrity of the work.
