If you were not clear, the article is Copyright (c) 2009 Canadian Journal of Family Law, which is visible if you google the article and check.
I actually was thinking about that but did not find info how properly to deal with it...

thank you for pointing out Mess - will not happened again... Probably better to delete post.

Another things what I would like to clear how you can use thouse articles in your court materials? Like factum for example. Reffering to it. How that copyright law work here?
