The Electronic Rights Defence Committee was back in Court on April 3, 2012 and received final approval from the Superior Court of Quebec for the settlement with Hollinger Canadian Publishing Holdings. A settlement with Cederom-SNI was also presented to the Court: May 18, 2012 was set as the date to hear objections to this settlement (see links below - "Notice to Members" or "Avis aux membres"). These two settlements are the last ones in the ERDC's15-year fight for compensation for unauthorized electronic use of stories originally printed in The Gazette of Montreal. Please note that at this point, those who plan to make claims do not have to do anything. The claim procedure begins only after approval of the distribution plan, which is the next step in the process and which we hope will take place in the next few months. We will keep you informed.
