CRIA files appeal in song swap case
TORONTO — The Canadian Recording Industry Association, which represents the country’s major music producers, filed an appeal Monday hoping to overturn a decision last March which protected the identities of people who copy music online.
In arguments filed with the Federal Court of Appeal, the organization said Federal Court Judge Konrad von Finckenstein erred in his interpretation of the country’s copyright laws.
Comparing the action to using photocopy machines in public libraries, von Finckenstein said in his March 31 decision that uploading songs to shared folders on a home computer was permissible under the law.
He dismissed CRIA’s request to compel five Internet service providers — Shaw Communications Inc., Rogers Cable Communications Inc., Bell Canada, Telus Communications Inc. and Videotron Ltd. — to disclose the names of 29 people allegedly distributing music.
He said the music association had no legal entitlement to those identities, which are hidden by online aliases.
