Hadopi Already Up To Sending Out 25,000 'First Strike' Notices Per Day

from the no-internet-for-you dept

When Hadopi first started sending out "you're an infringer!" first strike notices last month, we noted that it was initially sending out 10,000 per day with plans to ramp up to 50,000. It isn't taking long. The latest reports show that it's already sending out 25,000 notices per day. That seems like an awful lot. Remember, in all the years the RIAA was suing individuals for file sharing, it only ended up suing 18,000 people total, though it threatened legal action against 30,000.

Of course, this should give you an indication of why the entertainment industry likes these sorts of three strikes things much more than actual due process and lawsuits. They can go after a lot more people, for a lot less money, and a lot less of pesky due process and silly antiquated concepts like "innocent until proven guilty."

    On the political front, China has reduced the exports of rare earth metals to low levels that threatens the high tech industries of other countries this is what you get when you piss off others.

    This is why the U.S. will not be able to enforce ridiculous laws everywhere, they don't get the power to do so, the BRIC is growing in influence and together with Africa they are owners of almost all raw resources available on earth and China owns Africa while the U.S. lost the capacity to influence Africa.

    India, Brazil and some African countries have already organized something I think it is called Like Minded Megadiverse Countries (LMMC).

    The LMMC Group has been created to Act as a mechanism of cooperation to promote their interests regarding biological diversity and in particular the protection of traditional knowledge, access to genetic resources and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits derived from their use.

    About the rule of law, 2 U.S. marshals flee Brazil after being charged with assault for handcuffing a passenger in a flight.


    If the law is the law, those 2 marshals should be in a jail by now right? Not even law enforcement apparently respect the law in the U.S..

    Us one politician once said, "For my friends everything for my enemies the law", it reminds me of Bush Jr.
