The CSA and the Hadopi will soon merge into a single entity called Arcom. This authority, which will see the light of day as part of the future audiovisual reform, will be the new gendarme of audiovisual and digital content.
In the framework of the major reform of the audio-visual which it prepares, the Minister of the Culture Franck Riester foresees notably the fusion of the CSA and the Hadopi (the anti-piracy agency) within a new super-regulator: the Regulatory Authority for Audiovisual and Digital Communication (Arcom).

Clearly, to infiltrate the discussion forums related to the illegal download. They may also "acquire and study the hardware and software to facilitate the commission of acts of counterfeiting" .
To respect the copyright
