The Hadopi has its last rounds before a possible killing the Senate

David Assouline plans to file an amendment to the Senate bill on broadcasting that will transfer the powers of the Hadopi CFS in the fight against piracy.


Faced with a reporter, David Assouline, where the debate seems to have folded, the president of the Hadopi and its rights protection commission (CPD) have they discussed. Heard by the Committee on Cultural Affairs of the Senate in the bill relating to the independence of broadcasting, in an extremely tense atmosphere, Marie-Françoise Marais and Mireille Imbert-Quaretta objected to an immediate transfer or more far, the APF, the powers of the authority responsible for the fight against piracy. This is what must be proposed by amendment, driven by David Assouline.

"There are numbers. And there's fantasies"

Since this bill concerns in particular the expansion of the APF skills that did not fail to emphasize Olivier Schrameck, President of Hadopi focused its against-fires on the differences in "scope, target and approach and method "between broadcasting regulation, provided by the CSA, and application of internet laws, including Hadopi is one of the tools. Attempting to show that "without a systematic review, the accumulation of certain powers on traditional media and on the Internet may reveal potential complementarities, synergies, but also contradictions, inconsistencies, conflicts of interest, or at least , difficulties. " Marie-Françoise Marais particular fears "a decline in terms of independence" should its missions would be so transferred to the CFS, at least in an emergency.

The arguments of Marie-Françoise Marais had any of the response ... graduated. Face closed, she finished trying to disassemble, more incisive, the arguments of the discourse of Olivier Schrameck, president of CSA, before the same Committee on Cultural Affairs earlier this week. "I hear that because of the current uncertainties, piracy would 'increased massively." I would say that we must remain reasonable. There are numbers. And there's fantasies. " "A transfer of this device in the CSA would he to stem a hypothetical increase in piracy? No. The opinion would hold that Hadopi is deleted," she added.

"What savings?"

Then, this time taking the arguments of Aurélie Filippetti, also auditioned on September 10 and had assured that the transfer to the CSA would lead to savings, she said: "What savings The first item of expenditure? is obviously the payroll. The project he involves destroying jobs. So, yes, there will be savings. But whether it clear. And if not? Rent? It represents less than 2 % of the annual budget of the CFS. If the CSA empty premises, if it has too much space and proposes to host the Hadopi is willingly we will investigate the matter. " Adding that there had been no financial impact study on the project.

Mireille Imbert-Quaretta, less comfortable than usual and in a balancing position as it is also commissioned by the Ministry of Culture on an evolution of the graduated response to the fight against piracy intermediaries, posed the question: "Do we accept the same way the death of ARCEP", under the same conditions?

David Assouline, "the sooner the better"

A set of qualified arguments by David Assouline of "advocacy" to "defend the institution over which you preside." The rapporteur insisted that the law "will strengthen the independence of the CSA," and was surprised that we can consider that "uncertainty" surrounding the future of Hadopi "does not carry the while "on the piracy situation. He spoke Monday another plea, that of the film industry, which emphasizes a return to piracy force. SACD, one of the main lobbies of cinema, yesterday issued a statement to support the transfer of amendment of the graduated response to CSA. For the rapporteur, "the sooner the better."

Senator Legendre (UMP North) has tempered his enthusiasm, wondering if he was holding "a reporter speeches or minister giving the guidelines of the government." For him, it must not "break the instrument without having set clear how we can achieve the goal."

In the Assembly, which could therefore if this amendment is passed in the Senate not to discuss again the future of Hadopi, the main members who speak on digital are already mobilized, as they demonstrated on Twitter recent hours. Lavra Raudière mentioned a "new rant" if the amendment is filed, and Christian Paul denounced an "underhanded" calling "a broad mobilization." At first reading, the UMP and the UDI had voted against the text.
