The French parliament passed 2 amendments yesterday that legalize file exchanges on the internet via P2P (peer to peer) networks.
So from now on downloaded copies of songs or movies are legal in France as long as they are for non commercial use.
That basically means that everyone can download whatever they want from the net for free and that it would still be legal.
Anyway, according to Bader, even if the law passed at the parliament, it still has to go through the senate, then the President to be signed into effect.
