Federal Court of Appeal Rules ISPs Not Broadcasters

The Federal Court of Appeal in Canada held that Internet service providers can not be considered broadcasters within the context of the Broadcasting Act of Canada. The case on the point is the outcome of last year’s CRTC New Media decision. In the said decision many cultural groups called by the Commission to establish an ISP levy to fund Canadian content. The ISPs argued that such a levy was illegal since they fell under the Telecommunications Act, not the Broadcasting Act. The cultural groups argued that ISPs should be considered broadcasters in the case of the transmission of video programs. The CRTC punted the issue to the Federal Court of Appeal.

The Federal Court of Appeal sided with the ISPs, ruling that providing access to broadcasting is not the same as broadcasting. So long as ISPs maintain a content-neutral approach, they fall outside of the Broadcasting Act and should not be expected to play a role in promoting the policies found in the legislation. The case is a huge win for the ISPs and – subject to an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada or a legislative change – puts an end to the ISP levy proposal. The case is also noteworthy from a net neutrality perspective, since the court emphasized that ISPs fall outside the Broadcasting Act so long as they remain content-neutral.

Amendment in Trade Mark Law in India

India has introduced amendments to the Indian Trade Mark Rules, effective from May 20, 2010.

The amendments are as follows:

1. Class 42 has been amended to include the following services:

  • Scientific and technological services and research and design relating thereto; industrial analysis and research services; design and development of computer hardware and software.

2. The following additional classes related to services have been included:

  • Class 43: Services for providing food and drink; temporary accommodation
  • Class 44: Medical services, veterinary services; hygienic and beauty care for human beings or animals; agriculture; horticulture and forestry services.
  • Class 45: Legal services; security services for the protection of property and individuals; personal and social services rendered by others to meet the needs of individuals.

India has a different category of trademark applications than that in common international usage (Madrid, Nice and Paris protocols) and as such specific Indian knowledge needs to be obtained when dealing with marks in India.
