Quebecor lauds order for Bce Inc's Bell to pay $137 mln for failing to stop TV piracy - The Canadian Press
Sunday, 8 Mar 2015 08:00pm EDT 

BCE Inc:The Quebec Court of Appeal has ordered Bell ExpressVu to pay $137 mln, including interest, to Quebecor subsidiaries Videotron and TVA for failing to prevent the piracy of its satellite signal between 1999 and 2005 - The Canadian Press.The court determined Bell’s inadequate efforts to prevent stolen access to Express Vu’s signal cost broadcasting partners such as Videotron, Coegeco and Star Choice substantial revenues.By gaining free access to Bell, viewers could watch Videotron programming at no cost, reducing the number of paid Videotron subscribers and royalties paid to specialty channels of the French-language TVA network that had been distributed by Bell since 1998.The unanimous ruling by Quebec’s highest court upheld a lower court decision that said the satellite TV division of BCE’s Bell neglected to implement appropriate security to prevent piracy of its ExpressVu service.However, the province’s top court ordered Bell to pay a bigger penalty — $82.3 mln to Videotron and $404,000 to TVA Group, plus interest and experts’ fees.  Full Article
