“Law Against Piracy is Waste of Money,” Says French Minister

Because of a terrible coincidence, after Nikolas Sarzoky, political and lucky husband of former model and singer Carla Bruni left his post as president of France, the country’s policies on the piracy network suffered a slight twist. If before the fight against illegal downloads was hard, with Francois Hollande in charge of the land of the Gauls, the fight against illegal downloads was seen as a “waste of money” by local authorities.

In 2009, after a tremendous political effort of the Presidency of the Republic, entered into force in France a controversial “law of three strikes”, in which an Internet user could have their connection cut network if it were accused of downloading illegal content network three times. In an interview with Le Nouvel Abservateur, the new Minister of Culture Aurélie Filippetti said that so far as being “expensive” and “is not fulfilling its mission.”

Speaking about the Hadopi (the body which monitors piracy French network) Filippetti said: “I do not know what will be the institution, but one thing is clear: he did not fulfill his mission to stop illegal downloads. Financially, we are spending 12 million per year for 60 officers to send 1 million e-mails. “A study conducted some time after the adoption of the law already showed that she was not very efficient.

Then he said he has intentions to reduce the Hadopi’s budget for next year: “I prefer direct funds for things that have proven utility.” Also remember that the current law should take its text revised in the future, including changes in the stretch that empowers the body to disconnect web pirates. “The connection of the suspension seems to be a disproportionate sanction forward to the goal of reducing piracy,” he says.

According to the minister, the new law will “consider practical changes in the use of digital cultural content” and “protect the rights of content creators as part of a broader framework, which deals culture differently from other types of commercial product”.
