Re: <nettime> "Kill Me For Cash" - or how the French Governement defends its HADOPI law

The basic premise of the first ad is this:

Music piracy threatens the right of this child to be sexually exploited by
the music industry in the future.  ha ha.

Seriously, the way the older version is pulling her shirt open, then we cut
to her as a 12-year-old child - isn't there some law about sexualization of
children?  Even in France?

HADOPI is Haute Autorit? pour la Diffusion des Oeuvres et la Protection des
droits sur Internet.

Quite the oxymoronic name, since it means "highest authority for diffusion
of works and protection of rights on the internet."

Plus, I'd say the highest authority for the 'diffusion of works' part is
pirate bay, ha ha.

More seriously, the attempt to bind corporate property rights to the rights
of children is a bit obnoxious.
