Removal of Internet access compromises fundamental liberties

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.

  1. ”Last week, the French Hadopi authority issued its first order to disconnect someone from the internet”

    Can you please provide evidence of that it was the French Hadopi authority that issued that order?
    I’ve heard another version according to a comment at Torrentfreak:

    ”You clearly missed something… Hadopi did not issue such an order, a judge did. Hadopi did pass the case to the Seine-Saint-Denis criminal court, and the judge inflicted €600 of penalty and 2 weeks of Internet access suspension.

    Hadopi never had such a power, which is precisely why they are turning to inflicting automatic €60 fines.”

    Which version is correct, your version or the one stating that it was the Seine-Saint-Denis criminal court and not the Hadopi authority?

  2. It now becomes obvious that the French Hadopi authority did NOT issue the order.

    It does not matter what authority decided to remove what the UN and EU have determined to be a fundamental human right.

    What matters is that any review on proportionality will come to the conclusion that such infringement on the EU charter is unwarranted.

    ”It does not matter what authority decided to remove what the UN and EU have determined to be a fundamental human right.”

    I think that it does matter. A MEP shall not fabricate the truth, holding on to facts is very important.

  6. But it was HADOPI! They just did it by proxy.
