This is an interesting ruling http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-26296482
A Canadian court has ordered an internet provider to hand over details on 2,000 of its customers accused of illegally downloading films.
Judge Kevin Aalto ruled that Ontario-based TekSavvy must identify customers who downloaded films made by US-based Voltage Pictures to the studio. But the court imposed a number of conditions that make the ruling a decidedly mixed result for Voltage.
The court must approve any letters sent by the firm to TekSavvy customers.
The judge also ruled that any letters "shall clearly state in bold type" that no court had determined any of the customers were liable for payment or damages.
This seems a ruling that allows for the exercise of common sense, in the main it is likely to prevent abusive "fishing expeditions" by copright troll companies whom send out thousands if not hundreds of thousands of speculative payment demands for alleged infringement, this judgement married with the fact that filesharers in Canada are fine capped to about 5000 dollars means there is little scope to run such "pay up or else" fearmongering rackets simply due to the poor economic returns.
