France Began Requesting File-Sharers Identities

France Began Requesting File-Sharers Identities

High Authority has been reported to send out around 800 requests to Internet service providers, demanding them to reveal the identities of alleged file-sharers according to the French copyright “three-strikes” legislation. This means that the citizens can start receiving their first official notifications (“strikes”) just in a few days.


The times of disconnecting subscribers from the web have officially begun in the country with news that HADOPI has started sending out requests to broadband providers asking for the identities of file-sharers alleged of unauthorized downloads of copyrighted content.

The effort is actually a part of the French “Creation and Internet” legislation, the controversial “three-strikes” law aimed at fighting peer-to-peer in France. The legislation has first been proposed over two years ago, formally passed a year ago, however, not after first before being ruled unlawful because of the fact that HADOPI (an agency), but not a judge, was let to take the decisions over disconnecting file-sharers from the web.

HADOPI has already sent out over 800 notices to Internet service providers, and if it doesn’t get any compliance complications with them, it should start receiving the personal identities of alleged infringers, like a full name, address and e-mail. In fact, there’s almost no chance to have issues, because all broadband providers have confirmed they would respond without objections. Those providers who will refuse to comply risk facing an “offense of the 5th class” and be fined for around $2,000.

All this makes it clear that many country’s file-sharers would start getting their first notification letters (‘strike”) in a few days. Currently the number of the primary requests has been decreased to 800, as the High Authority is still attempting to work out the kinks in the system. Some service providers admit that a mass campaign apparently has not begun only because the government’s system is still not ready today.

The matter is that HADOPI is now working on developing an automated system, aimed at speeding the process along – that’s quite an important issue, as the Ministry of Culture voiced its hopes to be able to send out 10,000 notifications per day. However, most of the file-sharers hope the opposite and expect that putting such system in place would take a while.

deaftone avatarA good note would be that this only applies to french citizens and their ISP's, not datacenters. So OVH users can rest assured.
