Animal Welfare International Inc. v. W3 International Media Ltd., 2011 BCSC 299 (CanLII)

  • March 11, 2011

Date: 2011-03-11 Docket: S093691. Armstrong J. | Link

An offshore supplier of animal supplies sues the Canadian-based website provider responsible for the internet-based marketing and sales for failure to account for profits and continuing to use the plaintiff's customer list after termination of the profit-sharing agreement. Plaintiff seeks reports of sales, costs and profits from the electronic sources in the form of Pharmacy Administrator Reports. Defendant claims it produces "tables" but not reports, and only at the request of counsel. The court concludes that "report" is the same thing as "tables" at para 25, and orders "a copy of the electronic data storage medium containing the information in the possession or control of the defendant and used to generate the Report or capable of generating similar reports".
