Admittedly, I've only scanned this but it looks good and the topic is
important and rarely discussed in English.  For anyone who doesn't speak
French, Jean-Baptiste Soufron has posted an explanation in English about
what is happening in France:


Soufron gives three reasons for why this is important but there's a fourth
which RMS mentioned at the recent GPLv3 event in Italy:


  "In France, there is a battle going on and we still might win it about the
   legalisation of peer-to-peer copying on the Internet. This shows that
   when enough people get energised, the empire can lose a battle.

   It's very important."
