I am Le Pirate

Outcries from France’s entertainment industry has prompted the proposal of a Internet piracy bill in the French parliament. The bill seeks to crack down on the illegal downloading of films, music, and TV shows by using government resources to track Internet piracy. After receiving several warnings from the French government, the new bill could also cut off pirates’ Internet access. Special interest groups have erupted over the issue, claiming the new bill creates an unwarranted Big Brother system. French lawmakers are expected to pass the bill.
