HADOPI 2: an update

We’ve been alerted via Twitter (HT @clarinette02) to another problem with HADOPI 2.  This is described in a recent French online journal article (Hadopi : condamné à ne pas changer d’opérateur télécom).  In essence, it seems that if a customer of a communications provider who provided internet access as part of a bundled package seeks to change that communications provider during a period of internet suspension, even if the customer wishes to change for valid reasons (e.g. poor telephone or cable TV service for other parts of the bundled package), then under HADOPI 2 that customer will be liable for a fine of up to €3,750.

Ouch.
