i believe the CRIA is targetting people who are sharing more than 'x' number of files....not sure what 'x' is though; in the thousands as i recall

fightingscurvy is listed as a telus customer, telus only operates as an ISP out west I believe, so the user is probably not in the same geographical vicinity as here.

the thinking seems to be that this is a test case - the legal community in this country hasn't had an opportunity to try a modern file sharing case yet - so before they start going after masses of people they need to get their feet wet with a couple dozen to see if a precedent can be set to go after the others.

Going on the experience they've had in the states, which is varied, the judge in this case was right to stay the proceedings until he can research the situation north and south of the border before allowing anything to get to court.

Anyone who's on this list should familiarize themselves with the lawsuit and get on board with the CanFLI people, and also contact a lawyer.

canadian law basically dictates that you can download music, but the moment you send it to someone else (whether intentionally, like sending a file to a friend, or unintentionally, like if someone downloads what you have shared in a p2p program) , that's where it becomes illegal.

So the strategy has been to look for people who are sharing large amounts of RIAA / CRIA files at a time, then assuming they're sending these to lots of people, thereby breaking the law.

with that said and understood...is the targeting kept to kazaa or any POPULAR P2P site??...in other words, is soulseek safe for the most part?

I remember hearing something about how the ISPs wanted to be able to warn those people who were targeted by CRIA before they are prosecuted which would tie up the ISPs and CRIA in court for a few more months, anyone know if there is any truth to that?

If the methods being used were readily known, then it would be easy for the people who the RIAA/CRIA want to nab to protect themselves.

As a result both have kept their methods relatively under wraps.

People are piecing together parts of their strategy...see the link to the thread of news articles I've been posting on this subject.

It looks as though they're using similar technology to the RIAA's approach in 2003.

This may or may not be the company MediaSentry and their technologies.

Most of the people nailed have been users of Kazaa. Few (if any) users from other networks have been cited.

This does not mean that they might not be collecting information about other networks at the moment while these initial cases are being filed.

For the large part it seems as though the characteristic of the users they go after are a] sharing music that comes from labels that comprise the RIAA or CRIA and b] sharing large amounts of them at a time.

Recently passed privacy laws in Canada make it so that the fight to turn over people's names may not be as easy as it has been the US.

Also, the fact that far fewer users have been so far targeted (30 , as opposed to thousands in the US) might suggest that the CRIA are using either a] less sophisticated technology to hunt people down or b] that there are simply less people in canada sharing files.

yes, that's the basic way things go. The whole thing is being held off at the moment until March 15th, until the judge in canada presiding over the issue can educate themselves more on the topic.

What's been happening in the US is that the RIAA will file a "john doe" lawsuit to get someone's name turned over to them, if they win, then they file a suit against the person themselves...and usually end up settling out of court.

I did a quick check on their site, it looks like dial-up is available from them in Ontario, but not high-speed.

There is a fightingscurvy on Live Journal out of Calgary.

not necessarily, it's not in the financial interests of the RIAA and CRIA to chase after everyone sharing any type of file. Just the files that represent a threat to their profitability : in other words music from their labels.

I'm not sure if the CRIA is just going after people who share the work of canadian artists/CRIA music, or if they're going after CRIA and RIAA music.

kazaalite uses generic user names

i think they would have a rather hard time prosecuting kazaalite users ...
