Bell Ordered To Pay Quebecor Over Satellite Signal Piracy


MONTREAL -- The Quebec Court of Appeal has ordered Bell ExpressVu to pay $137 million, including interest, to Quebecor subsidiaries Videotron and TVA for failing to prevent the piracy of its satellite signal between 2002 and 2005.

The unanimous ruling by Quebec's highest court upheld a lower court decision that said the Bell satellite TV division harmed competitors such as Videotron by deliberately neglecting to implement appropriate security systems to prevent piracy.

More to come.
