Naomi Zener and Amanda Branch coauthored the article "Why the Federal Court ruled against TRREB on privacy and copyright matters", published by the Real Estate Magazine.
"The first quarter of 2021 has been a busy jurisprudential time for the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board. In TRREB’s privacy matter, the Federal Court of Appeal affirmed that the proper process to first bring a Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) complaint is to file such with the Privacy Commissioner. And, in an earlier decision this year wherein TRREB sought an interlocutory injunction against the defendant to stop their alleged copyright infringement of TRREB’s database, the Federal Court (like Elle Woods has done before on the silver screen) reminded us that one needs evidence to support their claim when seeking such an injunction."
