The Big 4 record labels, Vivendi Universal (France), Sony (Japan), EMI (Britain), and Warner Music (US), are distinctly unhappy with France’s National Assembly.

Unlike South Korea, which is full stream ahead with corporate entertainment cartel plans to have the government act as a state-run korporate kopyright kop, with local taxpayers picking up the bill, the French assembly has thwarted president Nicolas Sarkozy’s efforts to get the French version immediately in place.

Instead, a decision to vote on the Three Strikes law has been put off until September, giving opponents more time to rally support against it.

Under new entertainment industry rules, France’s Higher Authority for the Distribution of Works and the Protection of Copyright on the Internet (Hadopi) agency would, “oversee a system of educational warning letters, although it will not be able to administer the three-strikes measure to cut off consistent copyright infringers as originally planned,” says Billboard, adding:

“In a statement expressing its ‘great disappointment and genuine anger’ on the vote deferment, publishers and songwriters collecting society Sacem said: ‘While [our members] see their income from the phonograph market shrink year after year, month after month, with no compensation from [Internet Service Provider] online services to make up for their loss, because of the impact of piracy in particular, they solemnly ask the members of parliament to take their responsibilities to answer this institution of justice’.”

Oh dear, the cartel's throwing a tantrum. What a pity.  :lol:

I agree with the cartel's desire to see justice. The French Parliament should see to it that the members of the cartel are prosecuted on thousands of charges of Fraud, Bribery, Theft, Contempt of Court, (and if legislation existed for such things) Lying, Being Stupid, Selfishness, Greed, Dishonesty, Wasting People's Time and Being Psychopathic.
