Submission + - France reintroduces the "Three strikes law" (zeropaid.com)

Thanshin writes: France's lower house of parliament formally passed a revised 'Three strikes' bill that will allow authorities to disconnect illegal file-sharers from the Internet.

The new bill now allows a judge to make the 'third strike decision of either disconnecting an Internet user, fine of up to 300,000 euros ($415,000USD),or a two-year jail sentence.

The measure was passed on a vote of 285-225.

The first strike will be notified by mail, the second by certified postal mail and the third will cause the disconnection. The user will have to continue paying the connection fee during the disconnection time.
