Re: French 3-Strikes Law

The law stated that you are responsible of your connection usage. It simply means, legally, that if someone (undercover or not) else use it, you could be disconnected. They called it the "négligence caractérisée", meaning you didn't take any countermeasures to prevent someone else from using your connection to breach the intellectual property.

Can you give more information about this provision? Is an ISP responsible for the actions of their users? Is a message board owner liable if someone posts unauthorized material? What about an email service provider? What about foreign sites, or corporate sites? If someone on Blogger posts unauthorized material, would Google's French connections be cut off? Would Larry and Sergey be blacklisted?
