10% of piracy warning recipients re-offend in France

Coral Williamson

French anti-piracy authority Hadopi has released figures on how many warnings it has sent over its first four years of operations.

Since sending its first warning notice in 2009, Hadopi has sent 3,249,481 first warnings to Internet subscribers – just under 9% of all Internet users in France.

France operates a ‘three strikes’ rule in dealing with online piracy. Hadopi claims it sent 333,723 second phase warnings, meaning just over 10% of those sent initial warnings go on to re-offend.
