Publish date:

Not happy with enshrining the previously unknown concept of ‘three strikes’ in to French law, the French anti-piracy agency Hadopi has announced a scheme to indoctrinate children against file sharing.

According to Torrent Freak, the agency plans to open a stand at the Kidexpo in Paris where it will broadcast its anti-file sharing message directly to 150,000 children.

In an email leaked to French media, Hadopi stated that it “plans to propose a stand dedicated to raising awareness of copyright in the creative arts and cultural content platforms on the internet, in partnership with professionals.”
