French Senate passes bill to disconnect filesharers

The French Senate has overwhelmingly voted in favor of disconnecting Internet pirates, despite European Parliament’s direct opposition to the punishment.Under France’s proposed three-strikes or “graduated response” law, Internet users accused of stealing content online for the first time would receive a cautioning email. A second time results in a warning letter delivered by post, and a third claim requires the user’s Internet service provider (ISP) to cut access for a year.
