French Ready To Nab 50,000 Infringements Every Day
Is The U.S. Next?
Recent French vows to stop illegal file sharing have new teeth with the anti-piracy outfit Trident Media Guard being chosen to track and report illegal file-sharers . The company, also known seeding of file-sharing networks with fake data, will provide much of the evidence needed to prosecute users under France's tough new 3 strikes laws.
The U.S. music and film industry's trade groups have recently stepped up efforts to pass similar 3 strikes legislation, and at least some in Congress are signaling their approval.
