HADOPI Law : TuxFamily is volunteering

Publicado el Wednesday 1 April 2009

While the discussion about the HADOPI law continues, we decided to move forward. Thus, TuxFamily volunteered as an experimental hosting service to test the application and the deployment of the HADOPI concepts, beginning by filtering any suspicious content for any potential copyright holder.

The government approved our idea and decided to cheer us by hosting their VAlbanel project on TuxFamily's servers.

VAlbanel for Virtual Albanel, is a software designed to check if your computer is clean against the HADOPI law, for those who don't understand why "Albanel", Mrs. Christine Albanel is the spearhead of this wonderful project.

Currently under heavy tests, this software will be run on all download directories and web areas of our web hosting facility.

Also in the spirit of open source, which is not incompatible with HADOPI, you can download the sources of VAlbanel.

This is a .tar.gz archive fetched from the developer when the first executions of VAlbanel have deleted the original sources. So, we strongly recommend you to download and execute VAlbanel on your computer.

Finally, to prevent the upload of illegal content which might not be seen by VAlbanel, we will modify our FAQ on some points. Thus, we now invite our hosted artists to contact the government to get a licence for their work instead of relying on a free license.

Keep an eye on your files in the next days in order to see if you had unlawful files.

Your beloved admins.

Edit: Of course it was our yearly April fool joke
