My suggestion for a three-strikes law

(Dieser Blog-Eintrag auf Deutsch)

Several European countries discuss a three-strikes law against file sharers; when a file sharer offers or downloads illegal files, i. e., infringes upon copyright law, he or she gets a warning. After three warnings, his or her internet access is cut for life. In France, such a law already passed the parliament, but it could be stopped due to constitutional problems.

In Germany, such a law would, in all likelihood, be declared unconstitutional by our Federal Constitutional Court. However, our members of parliament could still be tempted to pass such a law, as they have never before cared that much about constitutionality.

As yesterday was the 60th birthday of the German constitution (called Grundgesetz, basic law), I had the following idea for a new and better three-strikes law:

If the Federal Constitutional Court declares a law as unconstitutional that was passed by the Federal Parliament, all members of parliament who voted in favor of the law are reprimanded. A member of parliament who was reprimanded three times loses his or her seat immediately and can never be reelected.
