After already demanding that ISP's censor web sites and disconnect internet users without fair justice the same same govt who enacted the unfair Hadopi legislation have surprisingly changed their undemocratic methods, they are now looking for some facts
before they act to ban streaming sites.http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20111209/02283717017/hadopi-wants-to-research-file-downloads-shouldnt-it-have-done-that-first.shtml
The French three-strikes scheme known as HADOPI (actually the name of the government agency that oversees its implementation) is a perfect example of such dogma-based legislation: no research was done into how files were being shared or even whether they did any harm (there's a fair amount of evidence that file sharing increases sales).
So it's interesting to see HADOPI putting out a call for some research into streaming sites (original in French):
The commissioned study focuses on an economic analysis of streaming sites and direct download where illegal practices are the most common, offering cultural property in the areas of music and video.
This seems the preferred way of both bringing attention to an issue and to gather facts and figures that can be used to openly demonstrate a case for legislation if one actually exists, its just a shame politicians are often too busy taking "donations" or free holidays to go through the correct procedures with any media mafia proposed (and often written) legislation.
