PARIS (Hypebot) – The French National Assembly has passed a three-strikes law that forces ISPs to disconnect the service ot file-sharers who ignore repeated warnings. The passage comes just weeks after the country's Socialist Party almost squashed the bill. The new vote was 296 in favor and 233 opposed. The law now moves to the French Senate who is expected to vote today.
If passed, the bill will be in direct conflict with a recent vote by the European Union Parliament against so-called "3 strike" laws; and is expected to be challenged in France as unconstitutional as well.
