QC Data has obtained an injunction against International Datashare Corp. (IDC) in respect of breaches of a 1997 joint venture agreement. The injunction provides that all current and future digitizing contracts must be forwarded by IDC to QC Data. Future sales of Canadian digital log data by IDC must be made through the joint venture. IDC has been directed to refrain from claiming that the Joint Venture Agreement was terminated or that QC Data was in breach of IDC’s copyright. IDC is to compensate QC Data for improper digitizing and log sales to date, while other outstanding issues and damage claims go to arbitration. In another dispute, QC Data is suing IDC for $1.8 million. QC Data President John Redfern, said "We are relieved that this process is coming to a close allowing to focus on customer service. We hope that now we are getting the lawsuits behind us, IDC will agree to more competitive pricing.”
