Re: Quebecor wins court ruling over Bell

Quebecor only gets 1M$ so can we really call this a victory?

It was never about the money, it was about making a point and they did.

Well, Videotron was hacked as well during that time. but it was more of a bitch to fix, and it cost more.

Example: If you wern't bright enough to download a rom on your own someone would do your Bell card (or Jtag, or whatever) for 25-50$.

To do a videotron one, it was 200$. It was more involved.

Videotron fixed theirs lickity-split. Bell giggled as they not only had the market for the most basic services with hacked and free channels, but they also knew people went to their boxes because the prices was affordable. 50$ versus 200$.

The whole market was based on piracy, Videotron lost.

But once bell was forced to upgrade the cards, people saw zero value in BeV. It just wasn't worth it, and switched to videotron.

Piracy is bad kids. Don't do it.
