Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

The French deputies adopted an amendment that will suspend the internet connection of users that have been warned twice about illegal internet activities such as downloading files from P2P networks.

Such users that will have their internet connection suspended will not be able to reconnect to the internet for a 12 months period but will still have to pay for their internet subscription for that 12 months period. Also, when a user has his internet connection blocked, there is nothing he can do and the decision is final.

This news was taken from a french website, so my translation is not 100% accurate.
