French anti-piracy body Hadopi is hoping to expand its remit beyond P2P filesharing to unlicensed streaming and download websites. The body has mooted the idea of monitoring sites for their filtering, copyrighted-content recognition and takedown policies, penalising those who don’t come up to scratch. This, of course, would rely on cooperation from the sites in question. “In the event that it would not be possible to reach an agreement due to an apparent unwillingness of the host, the public authority may decide to publicize the host’s behavior under the alert procedure given below,” suggests Hadopi’s report on its plans. The body is also keen on the idea of persuading (or even forcing) payment companies to suspend their work with infringing sites.
