DavidChristopher writes "In Michael Geist's column in the Toronto Star, he discusses — and debunks — two common Canadian Filesharing Myths:

... which isn't actually true. In fact, the number of infringement notices in Canada is on the decline. Canada now ranks 10th, behind Spain, Italy, and France, according to a BayTSP report http://www.zeropaid.com/news/86218/report-file-sharing-surges-in-europe-declines-in-us/"
