Is French HADOPI law dead? (6)

The story continues. Last week, it seemed that the law was in good shape. But the adventure continues.

Meanwhile, the “Commission Mixte Paritaire”, which has deputies and senators, rejected some amendments that annoyed the government. for instance, this commission decided that the customer should pay the full Internet subscription during the suspension.

Yesterday, the French National Assembly voted this new version of the law. About 40 députés were present (This lower house of the French parliament has 577 députés!) The result was 21 against the law and 15 for the law.

Is the law dead? No. The government can ask a second presentation of the law. It is already scheduled for the 28th April. No doubt, that the government will lobby its députés to avoid the same fiasco.
