chairman Pierre Lescure, who headed up yesterday’s panel, recommends
should be reduced to about €60, but increases with repeated offenses.
The panel also recommended that internet-piracy be decriminalized, so as
to not use valuable police resources or attach criminal records to
those who pirate. Lescure also wants to refocus anti-piracy efforts
towards for-profit organized piracy, as opposed to going after citizens
who want to watch the latest Game of Thrones.
