Clarification from the Ministry of Culture and Communication

Allegations of alleged use of IP addresses
of the Ministry of Culture and Communication for
illegal downloading, the Department would like to clarify
following:
- The Department’s Information Systems Directorate ensures that
the use that is made of the computers of its computer fleet;
- the configuration of its network prevents connection to
peer-to-peer, which excludes any possibility of illegal downloading from
Department’s computers. To date, internal audits are underway
confirm this point;
- the process used by youhavedownloaded.com cannot
no way to be compared with the method used by the successors
-right to make statements transmitted to HADOPI, in particular in
concerning the reliability of the findings based on an IP address.

It therefore appears that all of these allegations are unfounded.
