As you know, the infamous French “three-strikes” anti-piracy system was enforced four years ago and under it the authorities could suspend the broadband connection of repeat copyright infringers. So, the news is that the system doesn’t work anymore.
Ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy was first to introduce the controversial anti-piracy legislation drafted under the guidance of the entertainment industry. Along with France, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea have also enforced a similar method. In the attempt to smooth things out, the government created a taxpayer-funded outfit named HADOPI, which took on the mission of supervising the monitoring of Internet users and controlling the notification system. In other words, successive notifications were sent to repeat alleged unauthorized file-sharers and if ignored, they led to broadband connections cut-off.
However, this system was met with strong opposition from privacy advocates and web activists. As a result, an official decree published a few days ago by the Socialist government of Francois Hollande got rid of the provision in the legislation which enforced this type of disconnection. Meanwhile, fines and other penalties were kept in the law as before. Minister of Culture Aurelie Filippetti explained that the measure in question was necessary because it ended a penalty which wasn’t suited to the modern world, and because it demonstrated the new orientation of the government’s efforts to fight Internet piracy. The Minister also pointed out that the country’s attempts to fight Internet piracy will be directed from now against the portals that profit from unauthorized file-sharing rather than individual subscribers.
