At least this is one of several conclusions from the 400 pages report made by Mr Pierre Lescure and delivered yesterday to French minister of culture Aurélie Filipetti.
The study, ordered by French government a few months ago, points out the overall inefficiency and huge cost of the Hadopi.
However it may not be completely abandoned, since the ’3 strikes’ warning process had some dissuasive effect, the report says (at least on the average ‘pirate’).
If somebody get caught, it recommends not to close internet connection any more but replace this penalty by a 60€ fence (instead of 1500€ currently).
Also the global anti-piracy measures should be extended to streaming sites, and the mission to fight / decrease piracy shall be given to the CSA (the French regulation authority for audiovisual works, currently mainly focused on TV).
All these new measures and recommendations are scheduled for debate in French parliament next June.
