What will the internet be like after SOPA? Imagine a library ﬁlled with nothing but ﬂiers, catalogues, and calling cards. That will be the internet in a nutshell. If content holders go crazy with copyright complaints, the only websites left will be sites belonging to companies with teams of lawyers, or advertising sites, or personal or organizational sites made by people who know how to build non-copyright infringing sites, none of which will have comment sections. In other words, it will be boring.
The volume of alleged infringement is even higher than earlier reports suggested. More than 18 million complaints have been submitted so far, and Hadopi hasn’t been able to keep up. So far, only 470,000 initial warning e-mails have been sent to French Internet users. Only a small fraction of those—about 20,000—have received second notices, and around 10 French Internet users have received their third “strike” and are now facing possible penalties.
Look at that number. EIGHTEEN. MILLIONS. read it again.
it’s like 1/3 of France. What’s going to happen? I don’t like this law.
France’s three-strikes law does not work Thanks to our government, they won’t even need to use the word alleged in reporting.
PM John Key was against this law before he was for it.
