+ - France Presses Ahead With Bill To Cut Off File Sha->

Submitted by judgecorp
judgecorp writes: A law which which would cut persistent file-sharers off the Internet has been passed by the French National Assembly — and now only needs to clear a panel of senators to become law. The bill was rejected by the French Constitutional Court in April, but is back again, and if passed might be a green light to similar laws proposed in other countries including the UK. Pirate Party branches have been set up in several European states to oppose moves which campaigners see as governments bowing to the demands of big media players.
