Jeremie Zimmermann, a software developer in Paris, said the bill suggests the French government is under intense pressure from the U.S. Department of Commerce and lobbyists from big corporations such as Microsoft Corp., Apple and content developer Vivendi Universal. "Apple accuses us of promoting 'state-sponsored piracy,' " he said. "But how can it be true? These big corporations, and the U.S. Department of Commerce, are killing free competition on software innovation."
Very intersting.
