France no longer will disconnect Internet pirates, starting today
This morning was published in France the decree eliminates the possibility that people shared files on the Internet were disconnected from the Internet. The measure was part of the “three strikes law” or Hadopi law , which stipulated that in the event that an individual does not desist from anti-copyright their behavior for the third warning will be without internet access for a year.
This measure was never implemented, and only last year fined the first person by this law , although in force since 2010. After some analysis , authorities determined that Hadopi law is not serving its purpose, which was to promote legal services content, determining that the sanction of cutting Internet is not justified .
Thus, the Ministry of Culture issued an official decree on 9 July, eliminating this punishment. This does not mean that the law Hadopi ended – yet Piracy is punishable by fines of up to 1500 euros.
