    Default French Ban Laser Assisted CAN-CAN

    Ok, I needed a catchy title. The Frech government has banned indoor laser shows using class IV power levels. Details are sketchy, but it has came down the ILDA list and ILDA members have already had "trouble" with the ban.

    Evidently there are some difficult work arounds. I am in the middle of a critical, time sensitive project and can not devote any time right now. I just found out about this a hour ago, and I all I was shown was some heated comments down the ILDA list, which I do not subscribe to. If you need to know more I would suggest Patrick Murphy at ILDA as I know longer know any Laserists Francais.

    More knee-jerk laws from pillocks that don't understand the real issues.
