A film studio form Hollywood is trying to legally force a Canadian Internet provider to hand over names of potential pirates.
Voltage Pictures has petitioned with the Supreme Court of Canada to try to force TekSavvy to provide them with the names of people who may have illegally downloaded movies over the Internet. Voltage is asking for some 2,000 IP addresses in the case.
Obviously TekSavvy is hesitant to hand over sensitive information, citing privacy concerns for their thousands of customers. But if the Supreme Court of Canada sides with Voltage, the IP likely won’t have any choice.
