    The courts have just ruled that according to the way Canadian law is written, sharing MP3s is no different than a photocopier in a library.
    Meaning ISPs don't have to release names of file sharers on P2P networks.

    Great ruling! They sure showed the CRIA the finger. The photocopy analogy was great. [​IMG]
    Too bad it probably won't ever happen here.
