The end of the pro-P2P French legislation

Everything shows that the French Members of Parliament (Députés) are currently discussing the end of the attempt to install in France a law that would favor freedom for Internet downloaders.

The new law currently lacks any reference to the global license (and its explicitly included remuneration of artists whose music would be downloaded by the 3 to 4 million French P2P downloaders). On the contrary, it legalizes DRM (that will soon limit the rights that the user have in front of the CD she just bought).

Hope seems to be disappearing rapidly during the current debates.
