They should put a surtax on registration of copyrights and only allow french registered copyright to utilize the service. If the copyright holders have to pay for the service then at least there will be accountability for it.
probably not, but i would figure they would have to show him the documents to get his input (ala the upload link that he only used to test, which was never published so anyone other then him could see).
"Equally, google could protect the sanctity of marriage by not linking to gay sites like disney and could prevent terrorism by removing links to all sites in foreign languages or hosted outside the US."

Jack Valenti complained about commercial skipping when he testified to congress.
"Now, what does that mean, Mr. Chairman? It means that when you are playing back a recording, which you made 2 days or whenever -- you are playing it back. You are sitting in your home in your easy chair and here comes the commercial and it is right in the middle of a Clint Eastwood film and you don't want to be interrupted. So, what do you do? You pop this beta scan and a 1-minute commercial disappears in 2 seconds."
if skipping commercials is a copyright infringement
does that mean taking down a site and therefore blocking distribution of content that want to be distributed by the site also a copyright infringement.
And if that is the case, doesn't that mean that the US government is guilty of willful infringement for taking the mega upload domain down.
Is BEIN similar guilty for demand domain blocking of the pirate bay.
except the financial harm arguement doesn't exist unless you ignore reality.
Advertisers don't pay for timeshifted ad runs. If you were to record your favorite show with a non commercial skipping vcr the advertiser would not pay for that ad viewing irregardless if you were a good boy and sat thru every commercial or if you simply hit the fast forward button.
So the economic loss is zero when compared to the fair use alternative that this product is designed to replace.
It only when you falsely allocate those views to non stubstitute (watching the show live) that you get a false economic loss.
