Australia Piggery Video to test Copyright

A VIDEO in a test case over who owns copyright of an illicitly filmed tape at a piggery will be played in a Sydney court today.

Piggery owners Windridge Farms are suing Animal Liberation executive director Mark Pearson over photos and footage filmed by the activist organisation on its farm in Young, NSW, of pregnant sows in stalls.

The case could set a precedent in determining who owns the copyright of images obtained on the premises of a company without its permission.

Mr Pearson and two other animal liberation activists are due to face cross-examination today.
