The government agency in France that represents the interests of the Media Mafia has come up with some new extreme proposals as no one seems to be taking any notice of them. http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/02/frances-three-strikes-anti-piracy-regime-may-target-streaming-sites/
The French government’s anti-piracy agency announced Monday in a new report that it wants to go even further. Hadopi (or another related government body) wants to expand the mandate to specifically target streaming and direct download sites. The report proposes a number of changes to the French enforcement regime that could clamp down further on sites violating intellectual property online.
In short, sites that don’t comply with this government-imposed pre-emptive agreement could find themselves on the business end of a French three-strikes-style warning. The results could end in a domain name seizure or DNS and IP blocking. The report also states that there could be new financial penalties
This seems another case of making a lot of noise and wanting to be noticed, the reality is no one is paying any attention or cares what these foot-stamping groups do, the law seems to have fallen into disrepute as occurs when its unjust or draconian.
