Dear Marisa,

These two sentences were adopted by different jurisdictions that are
independent (different places / different magistrates) and whose first
degree decisions are well matched. That’s why the Tribunal de grande
instance de Nanterre was not obliged to follow the sentence of the Tribunal
de grand instance de Paris. Actually, this court (TGI Nanterre) was able (or
should I say “allowed”?) to deal with the same issue in a different way.

We must admit that it is more and more difficult to understand French
jurisprudence. It is quite impossible to draw out general rules from it.
According to the Iris (Imaginons un Réseau Internet Solidaire) association,
we are attending a ping-pong game between our courts :

I recently tried to clarify the French situation in an article published on
Lex Electronica few weeks before the Yahoo trial :

If your are still interested in the field of intermediary liability in
France, we just published a new case that exonerates the provider Axinet
from its liability in a domain name case (Tribunal de grande instance de
Nanterre, April, 17) : http://www.juriscom.net/actualites.htm (summary)
;http://www.juriscom.net/jurisfr/camif.htm (decision).
