CRTC rejects call to block content pirates in setback for Bell, Rogers, CBC coalition

A coalition of media organizations suffered a setback in their fight against so-called content pirates on Tuesday when the CRTC said it doesn’t have authority to police the activities they want shut down.

The FairPlay Canada coalition that includes Bell Canada, Rogers, the CBC and other large media companies had asked the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in January to help protect their ownership and licensing rights by setting up an independent agency to help locate websites with pirated material.

The coalition also wanted the CRTC to require internet providers to block access to pirated material.

The CRTC said it agrees “piracy causes harm to the Canadian broadcasting system and the economy” but that it didn’t consider the proposal because it doesn’t have jurisdiction under the Copyright Act.
