At Shaw, we are concerned about the growing amount of illegal material on the Internet and we are supportive of finding a fair and efficient way to protect Canadians from illegal sites.


Streaming, not downloading, is now the primary method of accessing illegal content online and paid subscription services offering access to pirated streams is becoming a sophisticated and lucrative industry.


These illegal sites often expose customers to malware and other malicious threats that could lead to serious crimes like identity theft.


These sites also affect Canada's broadcasting and production industries—leading to potential job loss and harm to the Canadian economy.
