Declining revenues are predominantly as a result of increased internet piracy and consumers shifting towards illegal digital IPTV set-top boxes. While the Company is actively involved in fighting this negative trend, as part of a recent Federal Court decision, the court issued the first Canadian site blocking order against sites that predominantly facilitate copyright infringement. This marks a significant step in the right direction towards Canada's fight against piracy.
