Canada Is A Hotbed For Online Piracy, Rightsholders Claim

Who knew Canada was a hotbed for piracy? I find it kind of funny that the International Intellectual Property Alliance, in its press release compaing about piracy, provided a list of the most popular torrent sites with "attractive, user-friendly interface." Whoops.

The MPAA, RIAA and other entertainment industry groups are unhappy with how the Canadian Government is approaching the problem of online piracy. The country remains very appealing to pirate sites, they claim, while ISPs often fail to warn infringing subscribers effectively.
