Canadian Downloaders Beware


Life has been pretty good for illegal downloaders up here in the great white north, but the times are a changing. Voltage Pictures LLC, which owns the copyright to the film The Hurt Locker has sued thousands of downlaoders in the USA. Voltage used the Montreal-based IP law firm Goudreau Gage Dubuc to force three Canadian ISPs - Bell Canada, Cogeco Cable, and Videotron to hand over subscriber account details. These people will probably be sent letters insisting they pay thousands of dollars for copyright violations. I miss the good ol' days :(
