The court denied the motion, ruling that CRIA failed to present the prima facie case needed to warrant disclosure. The court concluded that CRIA did not demonstrate that file sharers actually infringe on Canadian copyright law as it currently stands. see: Court Rejects Music Lawsuit also see: Judge: File Sharing Legal in Canada
