Association des Audionautes
The Association des Audionautes is a French lobby group founded by Aziz Ridouan and Quentin Renaudo in October 2004 that supports Internet users sharing files, including copyrighted material, over peer-to-peer networks.
It lobbies for the establishment of a "legal licence" for peer to peer users, whereby they would be immune to prosecution for copyright infringement as long as their trading is noncommercial and they pay a flat fee, which would be distributed to artists and producers as are other similar fees (on blank media, or for radio and TV uses).
