[BoingBoing] France's three-strikes copyright rule is unconstitutional and hence dead
All sanctioning power (ie. disconnecting internet users) has been removed from the HADOPI.
" This is a great victory for citizens who proved they can altogether act to protect their Freedom. HADOPI's "three strikes" is finally buried. All we have now is a big tax-sponsored spam machine for the entertainment industries. But this is not the end of Sarkozy's will to control the Internet. The next law, LOPPSI, is already on tracks and will be about filtering the content on the Internet. Citizens must celebrate this great victory but remain watchful..." declares Jeremie Zimmermann, cheerfully.
