Excess of his jurisdiction
The Canadian Recording Industry Association fires back at Justice Konrad von Finckenstein with an appeal. Note that they argue von Finckenstein overstepped his bounds in making the earlier decision. This would seem to be the argument that he was merely supposed to rule on the matter of ISPs turning over client information.

This, me thinks, could prove crucial. Then again, it could very well be argued that he had to broaden the argument to include the broader issue of downloading as CRIA's request for access to client information was built on the idea that users were participating in illegal activity.

Of course, then we have to ask whether any of this will matter now that the federal government has made up its mind?
