Nicolas Sarkozy has been accused of copyright infringement for a third time this year, after using a song from Canadian label Musicor Quebecois in a video seemingly without permission. The label’s lawyer says his party, the UMP, had requested rights to use the song and been refused, but went ahead and did it anyway. The UMP has expressed regret and promised to pay C$45,000 to settle the dispute. Sarkozy, of course, has been a prime mover behind the French Creation and Internet law which will introduce a three-strikes scheme to fight piracy. Pro-P2P campaigners are already crowing about the irony. Source: ZeroPaid
