In most countries, including Britain and the US, the courts have sided with the music industry and forced ISPs to produce names. But the Canadian courts last year ruled to protect the confidentiality of account holders, signalling that nothing is assured in the complicated world of global copyright law. [/quote:aaac9be1e3]
Deek, the point I was making was that our courts were more than likely to go with the British and US courts and side with the music industry.

Thats a pretty bad development there…At least IRMA are only going after the serious filesharers and to be honest looking at the figures for what some of those guys download I dont really have THAT much sympathy for them. As I’ve already mentioned my stance on filesharing is strictly try before you buy, the important word there being buy.
