HADOPI Free resistance

In this article – in French – Guillaume Champeau from Numerama brings his view on why the French ISP Free is refusing to cooperate and send the email#1 warning of the three strike scheme.
Comment Free bloque l’Hadopi et tacle Frank Riester au passage’

If email#1 is missing, no registered mail starting point and no three strike disconnection.
During the parliamantary debates, the text had not clarified that point. The Minister – ministre de la Culture Christine Albanel – might start regret it.
From an institutional point of view Guillaume believes Free is hoping to make the ‘Freebox un réseau propriétaire non neutre, parallèle à un réseau Internet à la bande passante moins généreuse.”
Of course, from a marketing point of view, this a big point, ” Free s’est affiché comme le seul opérateur en France soucieux de la préservation des droits et libertés de ses clients internautes.”
Same debate in the UK. Who will cooperate and who will not BT/Virgin in one side TalkTalk – Orange on the other?
