Setback for Bell Canada in $400m Movie Piracy Lawsuit

Canada's 'Notice and Notice' regime requires ISPs to forward infringement notices to subscribers, typically those linked to the sharing of movies via BitTorrent. U.S. movie companies say that since Bell Canada failed to forward around 40,000 notices, they are now entitled to CAD$400m in damages. Bell's response included allegations of copyright misuse, abuse of process, champerty and maintenance and unlawful means conspiracy. That hasn't gone according to plan.
