[cdfreaks.com] Three-strikes passed in France yet again
It’s been a great roller coaster ride, but France is finally nailing down a law that disconnects illegal file sharers from the Internet. [...]
Naturally, the new law has drawn the ire of digital rights groups, who opposed the idea from the start and plan to appeal the new law. One such group, La Quadrature du Net, believes that a single judge’s decision doesn’t constitute a fair trial, as it lacks “contradictory debate or public hearing,” and “the ruling is made without any prior judicial investigation.”
I think that where there’s a will, there’s a way, and French lawmakers have been trying for a long time to get this three-strikes law passed. Rights groups like La Quadrature du Net may have a tough time convincing the courts to drop HADOPI this time around.
