Re: How Long Till Canada Gets A Copyright Alert System

Marc, could you explain "We can't really say no" to us?

Thanks for clarifying

I think you have it crossed a bit though.. essentially, we would get notice from a court, saying an entity has intention of taking specific IPs to court. If the court orders us to, we can't really say no.. it's the law... so we would then give our customer a notice that we have been asked by the court to give up this information.. and then we would provide the info to the court and that's the extent of our involvement.

Man I wrote out the reply and hit the wrong button and lost it. Here we go again, F&S.

So I'm not writing it all out again, but rather, read through »Hurt Locker P2P Lawsuit Comes to Canada

The only thing stated there not really true is when I called PrivCom, »Re: Hurt Locker P2P Lawsuit Comes to Canada.

I stated in that topic that they said, "there is nothing they can do". This wasn't true. I just didn't want to write it in the forum where videotron, Bell and Cogeco could see at the time.

But they told me Videotron, Bell and cogeco broke section 7 (or is it section 6? I forget now) of the ACT. Seems they have an obligation to "protect", which they did not. So that would have been another lawsuit of "the people versus Videotorn et al".

Anyhow read through that link, get a grasp of it, then re-ask

I think Geist explains it all in his blog: »www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/6033/125/

Essentially, once that bill becomes law... We will have to live by it..

C-11 seems to be unfinished legislation since the Cons seem so inclined to delay implementing some of it, including Notice-and-notice for ISP's as per this thread...

More public scrutiny required.... which is funny, seeing how most of the bill was subject to intense public outcry yet rubber stamped regardless. Digital locks being the primary #1 fault.

I think you misinterpreted that. You meant to say:
More back door lobbying by US benefactors.
