Why it matters
SaskTel appears to be giving its customers the benefit of the doubt, by saying “Even if you haven’t downloaded illegal content, make sure you check if anyone else on your WiFi network has.” SaskTel also warns them to remove any infringing content from their computers and home networks.
SaskTel also posts a notice on its Web site, informing consumers of SaskTel practices in enforcing copyright infringement notices.
