Re: Hurt Locker P2P Lawsuit Comes to Canada These cases will be the litmus test for P2P law in Canada.
My guess is that major Canadian ISPs will be much more willing to roll over and identify IPs than the ISPs in the US were. With all the vertical integration going on in this country most ISPs are content owners and producers as well as bitching about *congestion* caused by P2P more than ISPs in the US, and so they have a doubly vested interest in terrorizing P2P users.
The only possible refuge here is the court system. If the courts rule that disclosing IPs is a privacy violation, or if they rule that an IP is insufficient to identify an individual, we'll be ok.
I am very very willing to contribute money to the legal funds of any defense against this crap.
