Re: DTV illegal in Canada? What is the legal justification?

said by sbrook:

And the actual violation is the American DTV provider and that's who the Canadian broadcasters should go after since they are infringing the Canadian Broadcasters' rights! The American DTV providers should not be providing service to Canadians.

But that's too hard and potentially costly, so, instead the Canadian Broadcasters twisted the CRTCs arm to put the fault on the Canadian consumer for buying foreign services.

It's also fairly deniable by the American DTV provider seeing as most of the time a 3rd party is selling the service to non-Americans.

I know it would be difficult to prosecute, but it's like blaming car manufacturers because their cars were used in bank robberies... a thin link at best.
