Position on the Law on Confidence in the Digital Economy (LCEN)
The French Law on Confidence in the Digital Economy ["Loi sur la confiance dans l'Economie Numérique" or LCEN] contains, after its passage in second reading in the Senate, measures tending to make the hosts of contents the censors of the "manifestly illicit" contents. April thinks that these measures could be used abusively to prevent the spread of a free software competing with a proprietary software. For April, only a judge should decide on the lawfulness of a content.
