In an opinion piece in The Parliament Magazine, I write:
Last week, the French Hadopi authority issued its first order to disconnect someone from the internet for the so-called offence of sharing culture and knowledge online. This shows a complete disconnect between the world of authorities and legislators on one hand, and the world of citizens on the other.
Having net access today is a precondition for exercising your rights as a citizen, and no authority should have the right to take that away unless you are serving a prison term in solitary confinement.
