Voltage Pictures peut vous poursuivre


Déchet(s) recommandé(s)

Bonjour en tous,

Je fais affaire avec Teksavvy pour mon service (39.95 pour 300 gig à 7 meg/s) et je viens de recevoir une lettre de leur part, dans ma boîte courriel. La compagnie Voltage Pictures a émis un communiqué à Teksavvy les prévenant qu'ils enverront une demande en cours pour poursuivre ou du moins intenter des poursuites envers plus de 2000 personnes partout au Canada. Ça touche notamment le téléchargement du film Hurt Locker.

Voltage sera entendue le 17 décembre 2012.

Voici la lettre et un article de Huffington Post

Dear Customer,

TekSavvy recently sent out a communication to some of our customers on the request for personal information from Voltage Pictures LLC.

Since that time we have had many questions from customers concerned that they may have missed the communication. We have set up a notification system in the customer portal to let our customers know if they were on the list. Please visit the My World on the TekSavvy website to verify this information.

If your IP address is on the list, please email [email protected] for a copy of your email, with full details. To see the communication that was sent visit:

The following link leads to updated documentation called the "Motion Record" received December 11th, 2012. The Motion Record contains the evidence and argument that Voltage will be relying on for its motion scheduled to be heard as early as 9:30 AM on Monday, December 17, 2012 at Federal Court of Canada, 180 Queen Street West in Toronto. In the interests of our customers' privacy, we have removed the list of IP addresses and associated information included in the Motion Record from the copy referenced below. We will provide this additional information to those affected directly on request.

At TekSavvy, we take pride in our dedication to our customers. We listen to our customers and try to respect their needs. We have always fought for our customers' rights and we take their privacy seriously.

We believe that you have a right to:

1) Have your privacy safeguarded;

2) Be notified that a request for your personal information has been made by a third party; and

3) Have an opportunity to defend yourself when a claim is made against you.

At the same time, rights holders are entitled to enforce their rights under the Copyright Act. TekSavvy therefore encourages everyone to become familiar with their rights and obligations under copyright law. For more information please visit:

You should know that TekSavvy does not monitor our customers' use of the Internet and has no involvement in collecting the IPs presented in this request by Voltage. We are also not in a position to speculate on the validity of the claims, nor contest the request for information.

For a complete set of information on the documents filed with the court in the proceeding brought by Voltage that we have received please go to:

The TekSavvy Team

Well known Canadian technology law expert Michael Geist says that Voltage may not get as much money from TekSavvy customers as it might hope to thanks mostly to Canada’s new copyright law (known as C-11), which went into effect last month. C-11 categorizes infringement as "commercial" infringement (maximum liability of CAN$20,000 per infringement) and "noncommercial" infringement (maximum liability of CAN$5,000 total). And because the law allows judges discretion in how much damages a rights holder can collect from an individual, Voltage could walk away with as little as CAN $100 per infringement.

“While CAN$5,000 is still very expensive for a downloaded movie, the law permits judges to award damages as low as CAN$100 in such cases,” he noted in a recent Toronto Star column. "In fact, the law instructs judges to consider 'in the case of infringements for non-commercial purposes, the need for an award to be proportionate to the infringements, in consideration of the hardship the award may cause to the defendant, whether the infringement was for private purposes or not, and the impact of the infringements on the plaintiff.'"

Voltage fait juste tester la nouvelle loi C-11. Ça s'est vu plusieurs fois aux USA, Comcast (entre autre) renvoi les subpeonas à la cour en justifiant que les copyright holders ne cherchent pas à poursuivre les gens qui enfreignent. Ceux-ci cherche à extorquer des règlements hors-tribunaux, sous menaces de poursuites dispendieuses. La stratégie d'acheter le DVD après avoir eu la ptite lettre est assez inefficace dans ce cas là.
