US Copyright Outfits Lobbied for HADOPI

US Copyright Outfits Lobbied for HADOPI

According to Wikileaks Cablegate, such US organizations as the RIAA, the MPAA, and the BSA played an important role in pushing France’s new HADOPI legislation.


Although HADOPI law can boast a long and winding road, it still keeps amusing people with new details surfacing. In one cable released by Wikileaks, American diplomats called the defeat of the law last year a “theater-of-the absurd parliamentary maneuver”.

Despite the fact that the MPAA and RIAA are US copyright organizations, they turned out to be very concerned about the French bill, literally saying that American industry keeps watching the bill closely. For example, the MPAA’s president Robert Pisano said this spring that the “graduated response” legislation is vital for the fight against digital piracy, adding that the RIAA had expressed similar opinion. In addition, the BSA (Business Software Alliance) joined the team, expressing the only concern with HADOPI’s article 15. Overall, the entities seem to agree that HADOPI could serve as an example for the rest of European countries.

The most interesting fact in all this is that the American entertainment industry seems to have such influence in the passage of French copyright law while the US doesn’t have a “three-strikes” law of its own. It seems like the American industry is watching France trying to deal with anti-piracy legislation so draconian that it couldn’t even be implemented in US itself.

In other words, the situation becomes an absurd one due to the fact that American entertainment industry is undoubtedly influencing policy making in other countries. Why it is especially disturbing is just because it’s been shown that a “three-strikes” legislation implemented anywhere is at least a national security risk thanks to the fact that the intelligence community realizes well that a crackdown of this nature will just make it more difficult for spies to trace people considered as a threat in the first place. On the opposite, the Americans would likely be upset if some foreign organization came to their country and began pushing to have certain legislation passed which probably wouldn’t benefit the US. French citizens as well could be upset if US corporate outfits began meddling in their affairs.
