Your legal questions
Do you (or others with access to your network) download illegally? The Hadopi law has put in place a system of warnings and sanctions that can lead to the suspension of your internet line. THE PROSCRIBED FACTS.
The Hadopi Act, which created the High Authority for the Distribution of Works and Protection of Rights on the Internet, aims to punish illegal downloading of copyrighted works and the commission of gross negligence, which is the act of allowing or delaying the blocking of access to the Internet by illegal downloaders.
Hadopi, through the Commission de Protection des Droits (CPD), sends a first warning email to inform the Internet user of his rights and order him to stop his illegal downloads or block his internet access to third parties. If the Internet user does not implement the recommendations of the authority within 6 months, he will receive a second email with a registered letter with
acknowledgement of receipt reminding him that he is in violation. This second warning is the last warning before the sanction.
Following the first two warnings, the Rights Protection Commission may decide to impose sanctions if a new illegal download is made within one year of the second warning. The Internet user can have his internet line cut off for a maximum period of 1 year in the case of illegal downloads and for a maximum period of 1 month in the case of gross negligence. Importantly, however, in the case of a box with triple-play offer, the telephone and television will not be
suspended. The Net surfer can make his arguments to the HADOPI (High Authority) to reduce the penalty. If he or she wishes to challenge the HALDE's decision, he or she may do so before the criminal court, either in the case of a case already opened against him or her for acts of counterfeiting, or on his or her own initiative to have the HALDE's decision invalidated.
