A Canadian wedding supplies company has sued a wedding supply retailer, claiming that the store’s website violated the Copyright Act.
The suit filed in provincial court in Winnipeg says the store violated a supply contract when it made the website.
The lawsuit says the contract was in breach of the supply contract by allowing anyone to sell supplies.
The store then charged the buyer $5.95 a pair for the same quantity of supplies.
“The sale of wedding supplies is a very valuable commodity and an important part of the wedding industry,” the suit reads.
“When a vendor cannot sell wedding supplies in accordance with a contract, they are in breach.”
The suit says the sale of supply supplies “is the primary activity of the business, and it is the sole responsibility of the vendor to ensure compliance with all applicable supply contract provisions.”
The company says it is in the process of purchasing a new, bigger site to expand its inventory.
