Taken from the Vancouver Sun : Canadians who illegally download music, movies and other copyright material may no longer be able to hide from potential lawsuits. In a groundbreaking decision released Thursday by Canada’s Federal Court, the Internet service provider TekSavvy Solutions was ordered to release to Voltage Pictures LLC the names and addresses of more than 2,000 Internet users suspected of pirating movies. Voltage is a Hollywood production company that has made films including The Hurt Locker, which won six Oscars, and the upcoming American Heist. Vancouver Sun article [] Federal Court Decision []
