Submission + - Canadian Do Not Call List Goes Live (

Sandman1971 writes: "Years after the United Stated implemented one, the Canadian government has finally implemented a Do Not Call List. Canadians can finally register their phone numbers on the list and telemarketers have 31 days to remove registered numbers from their call lists. Failure to do so can lead up to fines of $15,000 per offense. Political parties, charities, newspapers and businesses with whom you've had a business relationship in the last 18 months are exempt and can still continue to call you in the middle of dinner. Just how effective has the US DNC registry been, and will this mean some relief for Canadians?"

Submission + - MediaDefender Takes Down Revision3 (

Sandman1971 writes: Over the long Memorial Day weekend, Revision3 was the target of a malicious Denial Of Service Attack which brought R3 to its knees. After investigating the matter, it was discovered that the source of the attacks came from MediaDefender, the famed company hired by the MPAA and RIAA to try and stop the spread of illegal file sharing. The kicker? Revision3 was taken down for running a bittorent tracker to distribute its own legal content.
