You have to understand one thing : we, in France, have to pay a very heavy tax on every numeric blank material. For exemple, a blank DVD costs around 4 euros. This “numeric tax” as we call it is supposed to compensate the losses due to piracy as it goes directly in the pocket of the film and music entertainment companies. Therefore, the point of this head of french magistate, who is, if i got it right , the head of the most powerful trade union of magistrates in France, is to say that as you already pay once with the tax, it wouldn’t be fait to have a john doe pay it twice, as whenever a dommage occured, it is already compensated by the tax paid. Although, the french equivalent of RIAA won’t let go. The case still has to go in front of the french supreme court. So, don’t rejoy young men in thy youth, as it’s not over yet!
