Hollande says he will abrogate Hadopi

François Hollande, the French socialist party’s candidate in next year’s presidential election, has indicated he would abolish the current Hadopi anti-piracy regime if elected.

Speaking in Nantes, Hollande said he would create a “new law” to support content creation in the country, obliging ISPs and other groups to help finance artistic works. He said it was necessary to establish a balance between the rights of authors and the possibility of accessing content on the internet.
