EU Reaches Draft Deal That Would Make Three Strikes Provisions More Difficult

from the good-for-them dept

Over in the EU, they've been battling back and forth over telco reform, that has been hung up on the issue of ISPs and three strikes regulations, with countries like France wanting to make sure such things were allowed, and other countries worrying that cutting people off from the internet violated their basic human rights. However, it appears that a "compromise" of sorts has been worked out, whereby countries will be able to enact three strikes laws if they involve an independent and impartial tribunal, rather than the ISPs themselves or copyright holders. So, basically, France can continue down its path (since it was going to establish a gov't bureaucracy anyway).

    Pfft you have little knowledge of what's going on in France,
    they are actually wanting to BYPASS any kind of judge there.
    Thus it's not in accordance with what you're saying.
    The Hadopi (Haute Autorité....) doesn't have any kind of relation with a court of law.
