A few months ago, the Globeandmail.com's Barry McKenna reported that "Canada has earned a dubious distinction as a world hub for illegitimate file-sharing websites and a leader in Internet piracy." In addition, Canada is in the "embarrassing position of harboring five of the top eight remaining unauthorized BitTorrent sites, including the new number-one ranked site, Isohunt," wrote technology attorney Barry Sookman. To add further insult to injury, the Obama administration put Canada on its infamous blacklist of shame -- a "priority watch list" of intellectual property laggards.


Allow legitimate services in Canada

While pirating will always exist to some degree, if Canada would allow legitimate on demand services like Hulu or NetFlix I am of the opinion that piracy would fall off substantially.
