Re: Why we are not opposing motion on Monday.

It happened in 2005 and they haven't tried to target their customers ever since.

The laws just changed. This is a test case by the trolls. Rogers and Bell are the big fish...they'll get hit, and hit hard, in 2013 if this shakedown pays off.

In terms of ISP's opposing these types of requests, the law hasn't changed. I'm not so sure they'll go after the big ISP's unless they are sure they won't encounter opposition.

If Voltage pulls the same stunt against Rogers and Bell customers and they meet opposition, they will incur significant legal fees if they are tied up in court for an extended period of time. These are copyright trolls we are talking about. Linking a name to an IP so that they can extort money is their business model.

They won't be able to maximize their profits if ISP's do not give them a clear path.
