Canada ranks fourth in the world for illegal music downloads and has yet to be penalized in any way shape or form for its internet usage. This may shortly change thanks to a court’s ruling in Montreal which ordered four ISPs to hand over download data within two weeks.
Led by NGN Prima Productions Inc, an anti-piracy company named Canipre has been hired to track the copyright infringing downloads of those ISPs. NGN Prima has already been successful in going after cash settlements in the U.S.
Allegedly this suit is set around an action film owned by NGN, Recoil. Courts are set to hand over the user data of copyright infringers of this file.
While this issue may be isolated, you can assure that if NGN is successful, this is only the first of many file sharing lawsuits to come.
