If you're looking for French articles, here's one link to rule them all:
(It's Tristan Nitot's blog, he's the CEO of Mozilla Europe).
However, as we've seen with Sarkozy's infamous law on "safety
retention" (that allows people to be imprisoned for their entire life
no matter their conviction), I think our government will just change a
few words and then try again with this law.
By the way, the worst is yet to come: Sarkozy is now trying to sell us
a new 'anti-terror' law that will create a whitelist/blacklist-type
filtering of the Internet, country-wide (just like in China). This new
law is named LOPPSI and you may hear about it in months to come;
HADOPI was really just an appetizer meant to please Sarkozy's friends.
