Canadian Court Finds No Expectation of Privacy in Name and Address Held by ISP


This article summarizes a Canadian court’s analysis of whether an ISP subscriber has a reasonable expectation of privacy in his name and address held by his ISP. The court concluded he did not have a reasonable expectation under these facts. The court took note that the ISP was allegedly used by the defendant to commit the crime (sending and receiving child porn). Had the defendant’s internet usage not been directly implicated, a different result may have been reached.
