Hadopi: protecting intellectual property in France… or not!
Hadopi is both a law that aims to protect intellectual rights of artists and an institute that has been created consequently to the law, its main objective being to find internet “pirates”. This law was very controversial as it was not realistic, not proportionate and basically stepping over basic freedom of internet users.
The institute just released its logo and stirred up quite a bit of controversy in France. In fact, the logo they released uses a corporate font, Bienvenue by Jean-François Porchez that was especially created for France Telecom, so it is a quite obvious copyright infrigement by the creative agency behind the logo. Anyone else finds this quite ironic?
