From the NYT: A nearly empty midnight session of the French National Assembly voted to add amendments to an antipiracy law that would allow peer-to-peer sharing of films and music over the Internet, a move that would legalize here what is considered piracy nearly everywhere else in the world.

The amendments face a tough time later in the legislative process, since the government, which holds a majority of seats, said it opposed the move.
