First French ISP Refused to Comply With HADOPI

First French ISP Refused to Comply With HADOPI

French Internet service provider Free was first to refuse to send out notifications of alleged infringement to its customers, arguing that the “three-strikes” legislation only requires ISP to disclose infringers’ identities to the authorities, while not being obliged of contacting them.


With the official start of the “three-strikes” and the French ISPs starting to send out warning letters, is became clear that not all service providers are being so willing to comply. ISP Free is now rejecting to send out letters to its subscribers warning them of alleged case of violation. The service provider points out that HADOPI only makes it responsible for turning over the users’ identities to authorities, but not for contacting them.

The Free team simply said they don’t send HADOPI emails, adding that although the rest of the broadband providers have agreed to send out the first notifications, it’s their own decision to collaborate. Free only limits itself to respect the law, which states that a penalty of 1,500 euro per each IP address may be charged if a service provider refuses to reveal the identities, but at the same time the legislation spells out no penalties for those who refuse to send out letters to alleged infringers.

In fact, the Code of Intellectual Property says that it’s the HADOPI’s work to inform file-sharers of their violations, under its own seal and on its behalf. Meanwhile, the Agency argues that there’s an obligation for every Internet service provider to send out notifications, demanding Free to comply.

Frederic Mitterand, the Minister of Culture, sides with HADOPI, expressing his discontent with Free’s stance. In his statement, he calls such turnaround of the ISP to refuse to proceed at this level by sending out notifications to its subscribers “clearly unacceptable”. He said that this must stop as soon as possible.

There’ve also been warnings of punishment for refusal to comply. Creation and Internet law, which is responsible for establishing the framework for long-term development of a legitimate abundant and quality, is expected to be applied, threatening providers failing to comply with facing legal and financial consequences.

Either way, it would still take the government several weeks to review and amend the legislation so that it could require Internet service providers to send out letters on the government’s behalf.
