ERDC Maybe Settling with the Last Defendants!

Not much of a post today as I have to go to court in the Electronic Rights Defence Committee's 15 year old (almost to the day: we filed April 7, 1997) class action against The Gazette and its various owners. At issue is electronic use without payment or permission of stories published in The Gazette.

We appear to have settled with the last of the defendants, and now Quebec Superior Court must approve the settlements and authorize the next steps in the process. Maybe by this time next year, we'll be all done with the issue, with some relatively handsome payments going to freelance writers who wrote for the newspaper.
