When you think the DRMA (erm, that US law that is so much talked about) is bad, check what the french just did:

dutch translation: http://www.tweakers.net/nieuws/30557

well, i guess most people here dont speak french, but what this law means is that all internet traffic will be filtered at the borders of France for illegal content. also, not only owners of a website are responsible for their content, but so are the ISPs. there already was a strict law on e-mails, but now they removed the word "private" from it and now even private e-mails can be censored.
this law means that websites have to avoid having words like "mp3" and "divx" in their content, which is the death sentence for many websites obviously.

there is an online petition, which everyone can sign. perhaps it will change this awfull law.
