From what I've read a couple of places it is: "Canon’s view is that most fading is due to interaction with gases in the atmosphere, not exposure to light"

Arguably true for dyebased inkjet prints made on microporus media and on display at typical home indoor light levels. For pigmented ink less true, but again, depends highly on how much light and how much open air exposure the print is being subjected to.

Another problem with dye-based inkjet prints in particular is that many also have compatibility issues with the recommended sprays, so one needs to carefully test for compatibility. Also, dye based inkjet prints are also prone to humidity-induced dye migration, so generalized statements about how best to protect inkjet prints are often problematic.
