Vancouver Aquarium’s attempt to get an online documentary critical of its breeding program off the internet continues in B.C. Supreme Court.
The Aquarium wants an injunction to get “Vancouver Aquarium Uncovered” taken down, until its lawsuit alleging copyright infringement is heard.
Speaking before today’s hearing began, filmmaker Gary Charbonneau says even if today’s proceedings don’t go his way, he will continue to fight to keep the film online.
“It’ll be up to my lawyer, but we’re still going to continue fighting because we know we have a case. We know that this application is frivolous, it is without merit and we have every right to use the photos and videos under copyright law.”
The aquarium disputes the film’s allegations that its belugas have a higher death rate in captivity than in the wild.
None of the allegations has been proven in court.
