TORONTO - The Canadian Recording Industry Association filed an appeal today hoping to overturn a recent Federal Court decision which protected the identities of on line music swappers and equated such sharing/stealing to using a photo copy machine.

CRIA says Judge Konrad von Finkenstein made a mistake in interpreting Canadian copyright law.

Back in March, he denied CRIA's demand to find out the identities of 29 IP addresses which the association says were high volume, illegal music distributors. CRIA wanted the information from five large Internet service providers: Shaw Communications, Rogers Communications, Bell Canada, Telus Communications and Vid�otron Ltd.
