No word on the fine that the people getting the three strikes will be getting. I expect that to be the standard of getting sued and having to settle for way too much.

Asides that, downloading movies/series/music over here (as in, where I live) isn't actually illegal. Programs (as in, games etc.) however are.
I can't remember it word for word, but off the top of my head, the third strike results in you being blacklisted from signing up to an ISP for a year +, pretty much cutting you off the internet period. Which can be problematic if you use it for work or whatnot~

AFAIK (and this may have changed a lot in the past couple of months, haven't been up to date at all) they couldn't apply the penalty they wanted, which is cutting off internet, because there are plenty of places in France where cutting off internet = cutting off TV+telephone, which is illegal. The trouble is they can't selectively apply this law on people, so they have to wait for the ISPs to ungroup the services before applying the law on anyone, which is going to take some time and a few million euro.

But if they've changed the law into a fine instead of cutting off internet, or if they keep the records for a couple of years just so they can slam those 3 warnings in your face when they can do something about it, then yeah it's going to work.

Unless those anonymous sharing services become easy to use and free (which they may be, I dunno).

Hmmm so they ban the burqa, now pirates what next?

They have a new slogan "We don't like YOU people."

I fell this is going to fail big time. It says the alleged pirates have to be reported to a judge and he will be the one to decide whether to cut them off from the internet or fine them.

How are they going to send 150.000 people to judges daily? Who is going to write the warning letters. How are they going to prove those people actually downloaded those files.

This will be such a mess that I believe will be dropped within 6 months to 1 year.

Er, piracy is a world wide problem, cutting of France isn't going to make much of a difference to the statistics French people just get screwed over.

They want to implement these tactics throughout the whole EU.. To bad that downloading isnt illegal here in Holland just the uploading. so they will need to change the whole law system regarding illegal downloads.
