Canada Post Files Copyright Lawsuit Over Crowdsourced Postal Code Database

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "Canada Post has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Geolytica, which operates GeoCoder.ca, a website that provides several geocoding services including free access to a crowdsourced compiled database of Canadian postal codes. Canada Post argues that it is the exclusive copyright holder of all Canadian postal codes and claims that GeoCoder appropriated the database and made unauthorized reproductions. GeoCoder compiled the postal code database by using crowdsource techniques without any reliance on Canada Post's database and argues that no copyright in postal codes and no infringement."
