French Government Can Be Held Liable for Infringement

French Government Can Be Held Liable for Infringement

Usually, there’s nothing funny in a situation where a website finds itself insecure, but there’s an exception for those worrying about HADOPI law in France. The website of the French National Assembly turns out to be vulnerable to hack. What this means is that everyone knowing enough web coding can easily use the website for copyright violation, making the website of the French government responsible for “gross negligence,” as it defined by itself in the copyright law.

The highly controversial HADOPI law in France presumes that every broadband user is liable for ensuring the security of their Internet connection. In case they fail to secure their broadband connection (i.e. Wi-Fi), they are responsible for committed copyright infringement, including penalties.

As it has been pointed out countless number of times, an IP address is very unstable evidence, as there’s always a possibility that someone can hack your broadband connection. Besides, the argument for tougher copyright legislation to spark innovation is usually countered with “to spark innovation to bypass the law in the first place.” That’s what is going on now.

As soon as the French government started to give out leaflets to motorists, notifying them of the consequences they face if failed to keep broadband connection secure, one French blogger was quick to make an interesting discovery. He found out that the official site for the French National Assembly is vulnerable to hacking and definitely not the most secure place. Since acknowledging that the site accepts Javascript and iFrames, the reason becomes clear – iFrames is responsible for lots of harmful things that hackers can do with unsuspecting websites.

In other words, the idea of the blogger is that anyone can inject an iFrame in that website of the government in order to use it as a proxy for downloading infringing content. The system is easy: if rights owners decide to use the IP address to reveal the infringer, it would lead back to the government. As the government considered having failed to secure its connection (a website), it is responsible for “gross negligence,” as it is stipulated in HADOPI, the very law it passed.

Welcome, the creative thinking that the copyright law was supposed to encourage!

fusseltier avatarthat is ridiculous, then if that is possible why isnt the US government held responsible for everything they do to the people and the world?
