Re: What I would do if Voltage has my IP Address
I would have to disagree with you on many points. The government could ratify the copyright law to give Voltage untold powers over the legal system that the judges would say "this out of our jurisdiction".
First you have to see who backs Voltage if its the MPAA or someone huge they will likely have their own team of lawyers and such, and to go after 20k people across Canada will just be a drop in the bucket for them.

The government has given Voltage and others the right to go after people for money they believe they are owed. Limits are $5,000 for non-commercial use.
This is different than what happened in the states were grannies and teens were being sued for unlimited amounts of money.
These are non-criminal charges and can't be done by suing 50 people at a time.
If I am reading this law right, it was created to go after the serious scammer, either for profit or spit.
I haven't torrented in years, but I still wouldn't be too worried about it.

The Govt could make it even easier but... it could lead to political suicide if they did. This current Voltage witch hunt has resulted in a lot of media attention; can you imagine what tens of thousands being sued would generate? Opens a big door for the Liberals and NDP to attack if all of a sudden thousands of Canadians start getting shook down by a millionaire US movie company because of laws the Harper regime signed in. Sure some will be guilty but you know the focus will be on the ones who arent.
has teksavvy sent out all the emails to affected customers yet? i received the one email of them notifying what was going on but i have not received the email saying that voltage was requesting my information. Also i joined teksavvy november 2011.
I think everything is on hold, awaiting the upcoming decsiscion.

Marc said something about going back and rechecking all the IP info a 3rd time, and then reupdating the portal.
Log into your TSI portal, and if it doesn't show red, you're good.
As for the decision.. TSI's pretty much out of it now.
CIPPIC filed for permission to intervene on the 21st (with supporting docs, which I wouldn't mind seeing!), and served it on Voltage & TSI. I assume the Judge won't make a ruling on it til we're in court on the 14th, as its the first day back from his break.

If TSI is listening, I suggest they post somewhere in the forums the "drop dead" date for customers to check the TSI portal. The clock is ticking closer and closer to Jan 14th.
