Legal Authority Kills French Three-Strikes Law

The French Hadopi legislation passed last month introduced draconian measures to combat piracy, including a “three strikes” regime for persistent copyright infringers. However, France’s highest constitutional authority today ruled that Internet access is a fundamental human right and killed the three-strikes provision.

Now, in an unforeseen turn of events the Constitutional Council, France’s highest legal authority, took a similar position as the European Parliament. They deemed the provision that would cause people to lose their Internet access unconstitutional, and stopped it. Instead, the entertainment industry is only allowed to send copyright infringement warnings, something they’ve already done in the past.

The role of the High Authority (Hadopi) is to warn the downloader that he has been spotted, but not to punish him,” the Council concluded, arguing that Internet access is a fundamental human right.

The ruling by the Constitutional Council said that people can only lose their Internet connection if a court rules that illegal sharing actually took place. This also addresses one of the most serious concerns of the public who feared that they might be disconnected based on erroneous evidence.

Common sense does prevail in France after all.
