[News] Sarko's Gift to the MAFIAA Has Ripples Effects

Hash: SHA1

HADOPI Copyright Law To Get New Set Of Teeth With Additional Law 

,----[ Quote ]
| The Sarkozy government will implement a law aimed at promoting legal online 
| downloading in the coming months despite being prevented from cutting off the 
| internet access of alleged three-time offenders, according to official 
| sources. Meanwhile, the government has already begun preparing a new law that 
| would restore penalties this time decided by a judge rather than by the newly 
| created HADOPI commission. This would conform to a constitutional ruling on 
| the HADOPI law.      


New Zealand tries to revive 3 strikes law

,----[ Quote ]
| The New Zealand government is still working hard — on behalf of the corporate 
| movie and music cartels. And at taxpayer expense. 
| It’s trying to find another way to implement the now thoroughly sullied Three 
| Strikes plan, the fact French efforts have just been shot down in flames 
| notwithstanding.  



Second chance for French net bill

,----[ Quote ]
| A controversial French bill which could disconnect people caught downloading
| music illegally three times returns to parliament on Wednesday for debate.

As Sarkozy Pushes Three Strikes, He Pays Up For His Own Copyright Violations

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, you might hope that this would cause Sarkozy to rethink his stance on
| copyright infringement. Instead, it looks like his political party has simply
| agreed to pay up and make the issue go away, while still pushing for the
| three strikes law. It sounds like they paid about 30,000 euros, which is a
| lot more than the single euro that Sarkozy's party initially offered (yes,
| seriously). No word on whether or not this counts towards the number of
| strikes on Sarkozy's internet connection.


Political Hypocrisy: French President Sued for Copyright Infringement

,----[ Quote ]
| This may very well become the most ironic stories of 2009 in the copyright
| debate. The CBC is reporting that French president Nicolas Sarkozy has been
| sued by an independent band for copyright infringement.


Is Nicholas Sarkozy One Strike Towards Losing His Internet Connection?

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest is that French President, Nicholas Sarkozy, a big supporter of
| setting up a three strikes law in France, is being accused of violating
| copyright law himself.


British Government Violates Copyright

,----[ Quote ]
| As much as I utterly despise the entire premise of Intellectual Monopoly,
| this is about violating the principles of a Free License, and if it's good
| enough for the British government to violate our civil rights in the name of
| Intellectual Monopoly, then it's good enough for the Free World to protect
| its "property" (in fact Freedom) too…


UK government stole website theme

,----[ Quote ]
| NUMBER 10, the UK Prime Minister's website, is apparently built using a
| design it nicked.
