[BBCNews] French downloaders face government grilling

The body responsible for administering France's "three strikes" anti-piracy law has summoned a group of web users to explain their file sharing habits.

But Jeremie Zimmermann from French citizen advocacy group La Quadrature du Net [...] thinks that it is unlikely that anyone will ever be charged.

"For Hadopi it's now about this strategy of intimidation - they're sending out warnings to make people believe that file-sharing is bad, but that's as much as they can do "

"Hadopi is hoping that people will come and confess, that they will say that they have indeed downloaded copyrighted material," he told BBC News.
