Thread: Legality in Canada

  1. #1
    I am under the impression that sharing files in Canada is perfectly legal due to the results of a court case a few years ago. Can anyone here confirm or comment on this? Thanks.

    sharing of the files is absolutely legal, but another question is, what type of files are you sharing

    Thanks, but I don't see why the type of file could be important. Would the content of the file be of concern?

    if you see "copyright" word (or that "C") anywhere on the product (or in the programme)... well, you know what i mean

    Its legal in canada pretty much no matter what your sharing.
    I know lots of people who only had their isps terminate their service.
    Some didnt even get that much.
    They have filed 0 lawsuits on anyone I know that has been caught from Canada.

    They have too many issues with their legal system to give a donkeys ball so to say about people downloading files.

    To give you an example , I switched ISPs and was sent a e-mail on how to safely share files . It gave a tutorial on how to config. shared folders ,what to watch for if your a sever and the like . Pretty much what I knew but thought wow thats service .

    I should say there were links on how to use Emule , Ares , Limewire and a few others I can't remember .

    Here's a link so you know I'm not blowing smoke up your ass .

    It's legal due to our levy on blank media.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
