Dear GILCers,

The French Liberty of Communication Act has been finally adopted
yesterday evening (June 28th, 1999). The 'Bloche Amendment' (Internet)
has been adopted too.

This final version of the Bloche Amendment is essentially the same as
the one adopted on the third reading by the National Assembly. More
precisely, the provisions regarding ISP liability and content provider
identification has been kept as they was.

This means that the next step would be the discussion on the new
'Information Society Law', in fall 2000 or early 2001.

Trying to have the Bloche Amendment of the Liberty of Communication
Act reexamined in the framework of the Information Society Act, IRIS
has called this morning all Internet actors to sign the 'Declaration
of Internet Actors' :

- GROUPS are invited to go on signing
- INDIVIDUALS are now invited to sign as well

Please widely disseminate this information to groups and individuals.

Everything is at :

This is the single URL to disseminate. Declaration and explanation are
in English and French. There are also links to a sign form for
individuals - in three languages : English, French and Spanish -.
Signatures from groups and from individuals can be consulted also
through links on this page.

Thanks to you all for your help.
