Canadian recording industry goes after ISPs for the names of file sharers
And so it begins. While the available details are sketchy, the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) is taking at least one ISP, Shaw Communications, to court in order to force them to release the names of at least 29 customers targeted as file sharers. This will be an interesting battle as the legality of file sharing has yet to be tested in Canadian courts. CRIA's latest communications campaign includes their web page on the 'Free Music' Myth, which clearly outlines their moral position on this issue.
