Mais, non. France goes on downloading offensive

French MPs todaypassed a bill that would cut the internet connections of those who repeatedly download music and films illegally, creating what may be the first government agency to track and punish online pirates.

The bill passed 296 to 233 in the lower house of parliament in a show of force by President Nicolas Sarkozy's governing conservatives after an initial failure last month.
