Anti P2P Efforts In France Fail
« on: March 12, 2010, 10:51:18 am »
It seems the Cartel have lucked out again and their expensive political lobbying campaign in France was just so much wasted effort.

In the first few months following the adoption of the three-strikes anti-piracy legislation in France, online piracy has increased significantly. Instead of stopping, file-sharers are seeking alternatives to bypass the new law. Perhaps even more striking is that new research reveals that disconnecting file-sharers will actually hurt the revenues of the music industry.

Another remarkable statistic uncovered by the researchers is that half of all P2P users who download copyrighted content also buy digital content online. This means that if these users were disconnected from the Internet under the new law, the music industry would lose customers and thus revenue

I,m sure the media lobbyist that are still hard at work undermining democracy in other lands will not bat an eyelid to this particularly as its not spreading the message of terror they have tried to generate amongst file sharers, the truth is their efforts are a failure and politicians who write the copyright monopoly industry blank legislative cheques are the same folks who would sell their own grandmother to slavers given half the chance  :lol:

That's only stating what was expected by anyone with any common sense, but since when have the cartels shown common sense?
