Internet news: don't tell the British...

Following up on France's continuing democratic farce I went to the BBC news site to see what they had to say on Hadopi...  ..and was a little surprised to find not a single hit on their search engine. (Though the link below is to an article in the guardian.. someone is awake!)

But I'm still trying to understand exactly what the democratic process is over there in France - Hadopi -  legislation targeting copyright misuse on the Internet - passed by 12 votes to 4 - but now, as far as I can tell, the same legislation has been rejected by 21 votes to 15 in a vote just before Easter.  Again, most of the 577 deputies in the National Assembly had gone home.  

A little ironic that :-D
It seems that what is sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander...
