Should Netflix Be Regulated as a Traditional Canadian Broadcaster?

The Internet being a global phenomenon, there is now an obvious discrepancy between the rules applying to Canadian broadcasters, and what companies like Netflix can "broadcast" in Canada through a website or an app. When certain companies are subject to restrictive regulation while some of their competitors are not, there are calls from the regulated companies for the same rules to apply to their competitors.

Since entering the Canadian market, the over-the-top movie and TV delivery service has given Canada's major telcos a run for their money, as they compete for viewers with their on-demand TV and movie services.

So who will win the great battle between over-the-top providers like Netflix and telcos like Rogers and Shaw? Only time will tell.
