        The first person has been fined under France's new anti-piracy law. Alain Prevost was fined 150 euros for pirating two Rihanna tracks even though his wife admitted she downloaded the songs.

        The fine was levied on the 40-year-old because he paid for the web link over which the songs were downloaded.

        The French government agency policing downloading in the country is preparing cases against 14 other people it suspects of pirating movies and music.

        France operates a "three strikes" law which means suspected pirates get three warnings about their activity. If they ignore the warnings their net connection gets cut off and they can face further court action.

        For breaking the three strikes law, Prevost could have faced a fine of up to 1,500 euros and had his web connection cut off for a month.

        That's a pretty steep price to pay for a couple of Rihanna songs...

          This is so France.  They have to show by example however, fining the hubby instead of the wife sort of defeats the object surely?

          I guess it was the husband's internet subscription, that's why he got punished. It seems they are getting a divorce now

            That's qujite sad to hear about the divorce.  I wonder if it was down to the downloading of the music?

            Nah, I guess not. But it could have been a factor.
