Quillan Posted December 20, 2013 Author Share Posted December 20, 2013 Well surprise surprise I actually got a response via Email from "La Commission de protection des droits" today and it has been painful reading for me being in French and making sure I understood exactly what it says.The basic answer for those offering WiFi in their B&B or Gites is don't. The holder of the Internet ISP account is totally responsible for what happens on his/her side of the router. They can't offer anything to help stop this from happening and all they can do is offer some text to add to my "Charte Informatique" (I assume everyone has one of these [:(]) which we are supposed to give to our guests. In a nutshell all it says is they shouldn't use Bittorrent or any other software that downloads anything subject to copyright illegally. If they do and if I can identify them they will be fined 1,500 Euros and I as the owner of the contract with my ISP will be subject to a fine of 7,500 Euros. The tone of the text is that guests shouldn't do it because I will get in to trouble.If anyone wants the whole text (in French) and it is very long with lots of links which are totally useless for me then email me (don't PM as I can't forward it) and I will forward you a copy.
