France unveils anti-piracy plan

French web users caught pirating movies or music could soon be thrown offline.
Those illegally sharing files will face the loss of their net access thanks to a newly-created anti-piracy body granted the wide-ranging powers.
The anti-piracy body comes out of a deal agreed by France's music and movie makers and its net firms.
The group who brokered the deal said the measures were intended to curb casual piracy rather than tackle large scale pirate groups.
