Three Strikes in Frankreich vom Obersten Gericht kassiert

Wie ich gesagt hatte, ist die Three Strikes-Regelung in Frankreich vom Obersten Gericht kassiert worden, weil sie gegen die Verfassung verstößt. In your face, Gorny!

The Constitutionnal Council, highest jurisdiction in France gave its decision concerning the HADOPI "three strikes" law, final stage before the promulgation of the law. It decided that presumption of innocence is more important than the idiotic schemes from the entertainment industries to artificially prolong their obsolete models.

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 Jérémie Zimmermann, cheerfully.
