Since January of 2019, SaskTel has sent out approximately 30,000 notifications to customers who are accused by copyright holders of engaging in downloading or uploading copyrighted material, such as movies.

A SaskTel spokesperson said the number of notices the Crown issues has remained steady in recent years. Getting one of the notices does not mean a user is being sued by a Hollywood studio, but it could lead to a lawsuit down the road.

SaskTel does not monitor the online activities of customers, but it is legally obligated under the Copyright Act of Canada to issue notices of alleged copyright infringement when it receives communications from copyright owners.

David Fraser, a Halifax-based lawyer who specializes in Internet, privacy and technology law, warned SaskTel users that they shouldn’t take the copyright infringement notices lightly.
