French Anti-Piracy Legislation Inspires Piracy

French HADOPI 2 (High Authority for Copyright Protection and Dissemination of Works on the Internet law), is striving for stopping online infringement, but it seems to make the situation even worse.

The three-strikes law is developed to make copyright infringers unable to use the services from any Internet Service Provider for pirating copyright content. This is supposed to happen after receiving 2 warnings and meeting a judge, who may assign penalties of up to 300 thousand euro in fines or some jail time.

However, a research, carried out by Ars Technica, proves that the expected effect on file-sharing won’t most likely be the same as the government might have hoped. The report, made by researchers from the University of Rennes, shows a 3% increase of copyright violation since HADOPI's coming.

Despite it hasn’t been enforced yet, its threat seems to be enough to deter the activities of online pirates somewhat. The statistics from the report say that online infringement has decreased on P2P networks, as 15% from 2,000 surveyed said they had stopped download content via P2P. Instead, 2/3 of them turned to other online sources of copyrighted content, not falling under the law. This includes such HTTP-based hosting services as RapidShare and streaming (think of YouTube).

While all these figures are quite depressing to the government, there’s also some surprising news: pirates purchase. Half of the pirates said they also buy digital video and music online. P2P pirates count for 27% of all digital media purchasers. The report also indicates that 70% of all users are not involved in any copyright infringement. Most of them just use legal sites like DailyMotion, YouTube, Deezer or iTunes. Those who do break the law, do that on illegal online streaming websites and peer-to-peer networks.

HADOPI in France is quite the legislative process. France's Constitutional Council has struck down by the first version of the legislation, offering no legal recourse for accused file-sharers, in June 2009. However, it caused the similar legislation across the EU – think of Britain’s Digital Economy Bill. Both laws don’t take into account such shared networks as open Wi-Fi connection, which may be used by pirates without the owner awareness. The latter then will be hold liable for infringement as a responsible party.
