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."

    "Fuck em.

    There's nothing they can do now that's any worse than what they've already done.

    You freetards don't get it. You don't understand what is happening."

    I do. I accuse you of copyright infringement of my songs. I will be filing a complaint with your ISP, followed by 2 more complaints, and then your internet service will be disconnected. I will continue this process every time I can find any ISP you have service with. I will ensure that you either never have internet service again, or have to constantly change ISP's and re-establish new accounts, over and over.

    Still seem like a good idea to you? As no proof is needed, and the sole determining factor is the rights holders' belief in the infringement of whomever they are accusing, this should be A-OK with you, as you fully support the side of the rights holders to operate this way. See you soon.
