Pierre Lescure, who for years run Canal+, the private, fee-paying, TV channel, chaired a committee to review policies on piracy and thus Hadopi. The report is big (10MB, 719 pages) and was published on 13 M ay 2013. Available freely on the website of the Documentation française.
The committee used notably a blog to gather information and comments, and to publicise hearings of various people. See blog http://www.culture-acte2.fr/
It recommends suppressing Hadopi … and transfering its ‘jurisdiction’ to the CSA, another regulatory authority in charge of regulating ‘visual communication’ (TV). Current fines’ threshold would be lowered (60 euros instead of 1500 €) except if reoffending. Taxes should be implemented on tablets and smartphones -any connected device- to help fund
See Vie publique 14 mai 2013 “Hadopi, réponse graduée, aides à la création: les propositions de la mission Lescure”
For a longer review of the proposals: JDN, Matthieu Berguig (lawyer) “Commission Lescure: la montage a-t-elle accouché d’une grosse souris?” 13 mai 2013
But the Minister of culture affirmed there will be no tax, at least for this year. (JDN, 15 mai 2013): http://www.journaldunet.com/ebusiness/le-net/bercy-rejette-la-taxe-lescure-0513.shtml?utm_source=benchmail&utm_medium=mail&utm_campaign=ML7_E10245577&f_u=15900014
For another solution, found on the comment box in the JDN article 13 mai 2013 and on the blog culture acte2.fr: the idea is that the user/consumer has a “M account” where eveything s/he buys go into; the account would allow him/her to listen, view any content on whatever device for the rest of his life; the “M account” is like a platform (instead of a material support like a CD or a DVD) that the person would keep for life (like when s/he owns a CD or DVD) using cloud computing. The “M account” can be managed by the person or by a manager who then cannot look at the content or modifiy it or publish it (here I am tempted to add, cannot sell the data gathered!).
