How can it be? :-O
"The SPPF was relying on the so-called Vivendi amendment to the French
copyright law ( known as the DADVSI. The amendment states that anyone
publicly setting up and making available software or other technical
means to permit the unauthorised copying of works, could be fined up to
300,000 Euro or sent to prison for 3 years. The SPPF is demanding 16
million Euro in compensation from Vuze, and 3.7 million Euro from
Morpheus. The case had been blocked, pending the court decision on
jurisdiction. It seems it can now be pursued."
Pay attention at the amendment's nickname: the Vivendi amendment. How about -like CoreTX, Kaj, Felix & others said- stop feeding the trolls and -it's compatible with talking about how to deal with non-core issues, of course- focusing on making everybody aware of issues like this one? Just another evidence of current MPs not acting on behalf of citizens, but on behalf of third's interests.
Maybe Valentin Villenave and Florian Laute would give us more background information regarding this issue, in order to have enough info to release a proper joint press note? And Andrew coordinating the efforts? This can be a good chance for getting habited to make frequent joint press releases :) Regards,
