Hadopi 2 â The Relapse

,----[ Quote ]
| But notwithstanding the continuing climate of unreason, 
| history obstinately refuses to be repealed: users 
| continue to share massive amounts of files and 
| introduce new material into the networks.
| Joseph Steglitz put it well in an op-ed in Liberation 
| on September 16th, questioning the logic behind 
| reliance on intellectual property perspectives and 
| remarked:
|   âThose producers whose business consists in 
|   delivering music from artists to consumers have no 
|   reason to exist today. Itâs like trying to save the 
|   coach and horse industry in the age of the 
|   automobile.â (3)

| win a seat in the Parliament, getting only 2% of the 
| vote, falling short of the required 5% minimum.

UK Anti-Piracy Plans Cost More Than Music Industry âLossesâ

,----[ Quote ]
| As the UK file-sharing debate reaches fever pitch, with
| opinionated artists being shipped in by the bus load to
| condemn it, inevitably attention is turning to the costs
| associated with trying to end it. According to a boss at
| ISP BT, not only are the governmentâs plans doomed to fail,
| but could end up costing ISPs a staggering Â1m a day.
