After a tortuous path through the legislative process, the French Creation and Internet law still hasn’t come into force. In fact, its implementation is likely to be delayed by several months, after a block from the French National Commission on Informatics and Liberties. Its permission is required for any legislation that affects citizens’ personal data, according to Music Week. That permission has yet to be granted, and it could take until April to get it sorted. It’s just the latest hurdle to affect the French government’s plans to implement a tough three strikes anti-piracy regime – one which is being watched with interest by other countries and the music industry.
