Video Games Industry To Join 3 Strikes Anti-Piracy Scheme

So, if it is movies or music, you get six strikes. If it's video games you only get three strikes?

While "three strikes" or graduated response-style schemes continue to spread, it is the mainstream music and movie industries that are the main beneficiaries of any supposed benefits. To date, makers of other digital products have been left to fend for themselves but if developments in France carry through, that will no longer be the case. According to the country’s Hadopi anti-piracy agency, in 2013 individuals sharing video games online could also be subjected to warnings and punishment.
