G20 To Agree on World IP Litigation Court

Update: Got me – this must be an April Fool's joke.

    Perhaps Canada could contribute by nominating as Chief Justice of this body someone with considerable experience in many aspects of IP, management of new and innovative content related enterprises, and various types of high profile litigation. Maybe someone like Garth Drabinsky.
