This is one of the last couple of weekly blog post picks for the 2012 year. Yes we all know the Holidays are going to be kicking it into high gear soon for most but for TekSavvy Customers the Grinch may have stole Christmas or at least put a bit of a damper on it for some.
Is there a good reason though? To Voltage Pictures, studio for The Hurt Locker they think so. The law is the law and they want to know. If a court order is produced forcing TekSavvy to hand over contact info of customers who may have engaged in copyright infringement this would be the biggest of its kind. If an IP address matches that of a customers they say the customer may be part of this request.. OUCH! I hope for all involved they sort this out for the best.
You can read the full story here.
Although TekSavvy has retained a legal counsel they are saying if a customer is caught up in this they might want to seek legal advice. I can only imagine the legal fees for some of these customers let alone the company. Will this hurt business for TekSavvy? Who knows? Ah well, glad I was able to haggle a good deal with Rogers as I almost jumped ship although I don’t download music and movies.
What do you think about all of this?
Mr.CBB’s Top Blog Post Picks of the Week
