French and English file sharing fighters do not know what to do next


    I remember a few months ago, after the adoption of the " law of three blows " in France, a little confused notes sounded in many publications - what now, they say, will be with file sharing? In addition, a little over a year ago, problems began at the Pirate Bay - the problems are very significant, this time no one threatened with a finger, everything ended up much worse (you can read about it here ). Well, in France, in general, file sharing fighters felt like heroes who were only one step away from victory. But nobody did and does not do something. But here, in June, at a press conference it was announced that the HADOPI agency, which should monitor the "criminals", was ready to get down to business. And again, just words. What is the matter?

    But the fact is that fighters with file sharing really do not know what to do next. The same heroes from the RIAA spent almost a hundred million dollars on lawsuits, covering only a small part of their expenses. And file sharing both lived and lives, although it is a little battered (really a little).

    Apologists for the struggle with peer-to-peer network users from France unanimously began to complain that the implementation of the “three blows” law (while the “illegal” user was warned twice and then disconnected from the network) required very significant financial investments. The same head of the video game industry organization in France, Jean-Claude Larue, calculated that more than 400 thousand euros must be spent per year to track just one hundred games in various file-sharing networks.

    Another activist, Jean-Francois Cope, decided for himself that the fight against file sharing will not work, as existing legislation (!) Will hinder, plus the software and hardware used to operate peer-to-peer networks are constantly being improved, so you will have to invent new methods tracking malicious violators of copyright law, that is, everyone involved in file sharing.

    The most interesting thing is that after the adoption of the “three blows” law in France, and then in England, file sharing traffic only increased. And by the way, in England, despite the adoption of this law, no one does anything (except for very "productive" screams about the need to deal with "violators"), because few understand what exactly needs to be done.

    That's interesting, but what did the “fighters” think before the law was passed? Why didn’t anyone count anything? Or was it incomprehensible that file sharing, which exists for more than one five-year period, simply could not be thrown with caps?
