Declining revenues are predominantly as a result of increased internet piracy, consumers shifting towards illegal digital IPTV set-top boxes and declining advertising revenues. While the Company is actively involved in fighting this negative trend, the court issued the first Canadian site blocking order against sites that predominantly facilitate copyright infringement. This marks a significant step in the right direction towards Canada's fight against piracy.
