Copibec and Université Laval have announced on June 19 that they have reached a settlement agreement. A legal notice has been published on Copibec’s website. The settlement of over three million Canadian dollars is to be approved by Québec’s Superior Court later in September.
Authors, publishers, and RROs will be included in the settlement agreement without any action needed on their part. Only those who wish to opt out of the settlement agreement need to do so during the period defined in the legal notice.
