"Three strikes" has just hit a home run in France. But count on extra innings with the EU, where confrontation is imminent.
So - French downloaders, file sharers, and other "pirates" and anyone wrongly accused thereof three times along with their entire household will soon be in terror and hiding from the French authorities. Inspector Clouseau will be tracking "les pirates".
What would that great freedom fighter Charles de Gaulle have said? Perhaps:
- Vive la France!
- Vive la résistance!
- Vive l'internet libre!
PS: don't miss Ed Felten's brilliant take on this, HT to MG.
