01/09/2008 Pieces of an interview about Telecoms Package

Right now I'm trying to make sure that the telecoms packet doesn't open any door for filtering Internet or the graduate response – 3 strikes and you're out of Internet – the French government was working on. I try to make sure the Telecoms Package can't create that. You can't turn legislation upside down and treat people as criminals. Just because some might do something bad, you can't filter anybody. It's like the post office: imagine if the post office can open every letter to see if somebody is sending something illegal. It's not like if the Telecoms Package is voted tomorrow the Internet will be filtered but it takes us one step further to let states filter Internet. Those complicated bad amendments results from massive lobbying campaign from right holders and the music/film industry that think it's ok to filter and suspend Internet connections to protect copyright. The problem is that we have a division in generations. Some of my colleagues view the Internet just as a mean of download or just a problem. But that's actually an extremely important part of people's lives and a way to use freedom of expression and freedom of information. Pick up the phone, call your members of parliament and tell them : "I'd like to explain how i view this". That's the thing that people can do towards their politicians. Not only their members of parliament but also members of their national parliament and ask "What your party think about this?" Reach your government just to get it debated and make people aware that this something people care about. We have to take every fight once at a time and hopefully we will win.
