[News] Neo-fascism Ruins French Internet

Hash: SHA1

HADOPI Law Passed - by 12 Votes to 4

,----[ Quote ]
| It is difficult to believe in democracy in which we aim to live and write. 
| After 41 hours and 40 minutes of passionate discussion on the text, there 
| remained only a handful of courageous members around 22:45 Thursday evening 
| when the National Assembly decided, on the instructions of the Secretary of 
| State Roger Karoutchi to pass immediately to vote on the Creation and 
| Internet law, which was not expected before next week. One exception, which 
| allows you to hide the large number of UMP deputies who would have abstained 
| if the vote had been, as tradition dictates, after the government issues 
| Tuesday night. Thus wished Nicolas Sarkozy.        
| [...]
| So one of the most important, and contentious piece of legislation in recent 
| years is passed by trickery. In this way, those pushing this law have shown 
| their true colours and their contempt for the democratic process.

| All this means is that people aren't sharing so much stuff online. But now 
| that you can pick up a 1 Terabyte external hard drive for less than a hundred 
| quid - which can store about a quarter of a million songs - guess what people 
| are going to turn to in order to swap files in the future?   



Political Hypocrisy: French President Sued for Copyright Infringement

| copyright law himself.
