HADOPI pour les nuls : explications et contournements

HADOPI pour les nuls : explications et contournements
Vendredi 3 avril 2009, l’assemblée nationale a adopté la loi "Création et Internet", avec seulement 16 députés dans l’hémicycle. Pourtant ce texte risque, s’il est appliqué, d’apporter de profondes modifications au web français tel que nous le connaissons. Cette loi instaure entre autres la "riposte graduée", qui en cas de téléchargement illégal, après l’envoi de 2 avertissements, prévoit la coupure de la connexion internet de l’abonné contrevenant. La plupart des arguments qui s’opposent à cette loi étant assez techniques, je vais tenter d’expliquer certains éléments de fonctionnement du net qui sont utiles pour les comprendres, puis j’aborderai point par point les éléments de la loi qui selon moi sont problématiques. J’essaierai également sur chaque point de montrer en quoi cette loi et d’ores et déjà inutile en montrant les différents contournements existants. Tout d’abord pour qu’il y ait sanction, il faut qu’il y ait constatation d’une infraction. Contournement : Contournement :

Et si on s'était trompé (de stratégie) ? L’adoption en deuxième lecture du projet de loi Internet et Création, qui a pour objectif de faire cesser le piratage sur Internet par la mise en oeuvre de la méthode dite de « riposte graduée » clôt un cycle de plusieurs semaines de polémiques et de débats. Pour les opposants à la loi, parmi lesquels je me compte, c’est l’occasion de faire un retour sur ces débats et sur ce qui fait que, loi après loi, personne ne semble en mesure d’inverser la tendance d’un législation toujours plus répressive pour les usages d’Internet. Il est en particulier important de revenir sur les stratégies de positionnement qui ont été à l’oeuvre au cours des débats. Les Modernes ont toujours tort Pas tout à fait fausse, l’opposition des Anciens et des Modernes n’est pas non plus tout à fait vraie ; et surtout, c’est ce que je vais tenter de montrer maintenant, il est possible qu’elle enferme les Modernes - les opposants à la loi donc - dans une position nécessairement perdante.

Why no one cares about privacy anymore | Politics and Law Google co-founder Sergey Brin adores the company's social network called Google Buzz . We know this because an engineer working five feet from Brin used Google Buzz to say so. "I just finished eating dinner with Sergey and four other Buzz engineers in one of Google's cafes," engineer John Costigan wrote a day after the Twitter-and-Facebook-esque service was announced. "He was particularly impressed with the smooth launch and the great media response it generated." You might call Brin's enthusiasm premature, especially since privacy criticisms prompted Google to make a series of quick changes a few days later. But a funny thing happened on the way to the courthouse: relatively few Google Buzz users seem to mind. My hunch is that Google Buzz will continue to grow because, after nearly a decade of social-networking experiences (its great-granddaddy, Friendster, started in early 2002), Internet users have grown accustomed to informational exhibitionism. --Richard Posner, federal judge

Against Transparency Against Transparency In 2006, the Sunlight Foundation launched a campaign to get members of Congress to post their daily calendars on the Internet. "The Punch-Clock Campaign" collected pledges from ninety-two candidates for Congress, and one of them was elected. I remember when the project was described to me by one of its developers. In any case, the momentum was on her side. And not just in politics. How could anyone be against transparency? The naked transparency movement marries the power of network technology to the radical decline in the cost of collecting, storing, and distributing data. The most obvious examples of this new responsibility for disclosure are data about the legislative process: the demand, now backed by the White House, that bills be posted to the Internet at least twenty-four hours before they are voted upon, or that video of legislative hearings and floor debate be freed from the proprietary control of one (easily disciplined) entity such as C-SPAN.

Internet en 2015 La vidéo ci-dessous présente quelques chiffres et conclusions clés liées à l’Internet en 2010, et extrapole les évolutions d’ici à 2015 pour nous présenter une première idée de ce que pourrait être le futur du web (si la fin du monde n’est pas passée par là avant). A noter que les résultats ont été publiés en 15 tweets par le site Digital Life qui a mené l’étude, site que vous pourrez retrouver en source. Je vous ai traduites les informations principales en français et la vidéo (en anglais) est à la suite (avec d’autres données) ! 1 – Il aura fallu 100 ans pour avoir 1 milliards de lignes fixes et seulement 20 ans pour atteindre 5 milliards d’abonnements mobiles. 2 – Dès 2014, le nombre de Mobinautes dépassera le nombre d’Internautes sur ordinateur fixe. 3 – Le trafic global de l’Internet mobile en 2015 équivaudra à 19 milliards de DVD. 4 – Les Internautes n’utilisant que le mobile pour se connecter vont être en 2015 56 fois plus nombreux qu’en 2010 soit 788 millions.

A hidden world, growing beyond control (Printer friendly version) Monday, July 19, 2010; 4:50 PM The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by The Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine. The investigation's other findings include: * An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1.5 times as many people as live in Washington, D.C., hold top-secret security clearances. An alternative geography This is not exactly President Dwight D.

Internet Statistics & Social Media Usage forget-privacy--its-conversation-google-is-killing-8539621 Now, thanks to US electronics, smart will mean being topped and tailed by Google. At last week’s annual SXSW conference in Texas – a media and technology love-in – the internet search company unveiled not just the first full demonstration of its glasses which can search the internet and display results in the user’s eyeline; but also prototype electronically enhanced footwear which will provide instant feedback to the wearer as to his or her physical performance and needs, via a speaker embedded in one of the shoes’ tongues. Or, as the headline in Scientific American put it: “Shoe puts mouth in foot.” Well, it seems stupid to me, too. But Google’s spokesperson enthusiastically proclaimed that the shoe will use data from the user to create an appropriate personality: “If you start running and the shoe has an athletic personality, it will cheer you on. I’m far from persuaded that this innovation is not a spoof, a rare example of humour from the techno-visionaries at Google.

Apple removes ThirdIntifada from the App Store - TNW Apple Apple has removed the ThirdIntifada app from the App Store, after the Israeli government asked Apple to get rid of it earlier this week. ThirdIntifada was used to distribute anti-Israeli editorial and announce scheduled protests to Palestinian users. Intifada is an Arabic word that means “shaking off” but can be more accurately translated to English as “uprising”. Two previous Israeli-Palestinian conflicts are known as the First Intifada and Second Intifada, and the name ThirdIntifada makes the intent of those behind the app quite clear. Israel’s information minister Yuli Edelstein and the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights group, both complained to Apple.

Web 2.0 Companies Do Not Have Any Women on Their Board of Directors In one memorable episode of the famous old short films “The Little Rascals,” after not getting invited to a party, the Our Gang little dudes decided to form their own group, comically called “The He-Man Woman-Haters Club.” In other words: No girls allowed! While it was wink-wink cute when Spanky, Alfalfa and Buckwheat huffed and puffed about keeping out Darla–which they never ever could do–back in the last century, it’s not quite as adorkable when it comes to the boards of all the major Web 2.0 hotshots these days. That would be Twitter, Facebook, Zynga, Groupon and Foursquare, none of which have any women as directors. As in zero. What’s most remarkable is that most of these start-ups are run by what I consider enlightened and open-minded entrepreneurs, mostly young enough to be part of a generation more inclined to value equality and diversity in the workplace. In addition, each of these companies has a massive base of women consumers, in some cases well over 50 percent of its audience.

ARCHÉOLOGIE 2.0 – On a retrouvé la première photo postée sur le Web Silvano de Gennaro. (DR) Comme le note le site Gizmodo, c'est un cliché qui ressemble à beaucoup d'autres postés aujourd'hui sur Facebook. Quatre jeunes femmes, membre du groupe Les Horribles Cernettes posent devant l'objectif de Silvano de Gennaro, un ingénieur du CERN. Nous sommes en 1992 et le World Wide Web balbutie. Le groupe de musique est en fait composé de membres de l'équipe du laboratoire situé en Suisse où de nombreux ingénieurs, parmi lesquels Tim Berners-Lee, considéré comme l'un des inventeurs du Web, planchent sur l'amélioration du système. Comme le raconte dans le détail le site Motherboard, le 18 juillet 1992, Silvano de Gennaro assiste en backstage au Hardronic Music Festival, un évènement annuel organisé par les équipes du CERN. "En 92-93, le Web n'était utilisé que par des physiciens", explique l'auteur de la photo à Motherboard. "Tu mets une jolie fille dans le média, et les gens remarqueront le média", a ajouté Jean-François Gross, l'un des programmeurs du CERN.
