Data protection agency says 'Non'

The controversial French 'three strikes' law has hit yet another delay - it has failed to win approval from the French data protection agency.

The Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL), which works to protect French citizens from technology which may breach their rights to privacy and personal and public liberty, has not yet approved the law.

The regulator seems to be concerned at how the punishment procedure of the Hadopi law would work in practice.

The government is likely to tweak exactly how this works in order to satisfy the regulator, according to La Tribune, via Babelfish.

The law was finally passed by the French Senate in September, having already fallen foul of the country's Supreme Court in June. ®
