"In the latest turn in an ongoing legal dispute, Canadian ISP TekSavvy has been ordered to hand over the IP addresses information of subscribers allegedly engaging in copyright infringement of Voltage Pictures works.

While it doesn't look like a great decision on the surface (an IP address does not uniquely identify an infringer), the court specifically said it wants to sign off on the wording of any contact notices issued by Voltage to prevent extortionary "Copyright Troll" messages. It will be interesting to see if this new decision scales."

    I didn't like "The Hurt Locker" either, but it won six Oscars, which seems to mean something to a lot of people... and "Dallas Buyer's Club" has been nominated for a few as well. By the standards that many people seem to apply, those two movies (and possibly others in Voltage's catalogue) are not complete crap and probably did make a lot of money.

    Yeah; the people who made it. The Academy Awards is a circlejerk. My balls won six Oscars but you don't hear them going on about it because they don't have their own TV network.
