First HADOPI Victim Convicted, Not For His Own Infringement, But Because His Wife Downloaded Songs

Well, here's a nice contrast: just when a judge in the US has ruled that users there have no obligation to lock down their wifi connections, a court in France decides the exact opposite. What makes the story even more significant is that the individual concerned is the first person to be convicted under France's 3-strikes law, generally known as HADOPI. 

On Techdirt.
