Well,from what i can gather,TMP is a private third party company subcontracted to enforce DRM violations ..ie if you download copyrighted material illegally three times they make an application to your ISP to ban your IP address,this also goes on a database so it make your chances of moving to another ISP a little more difficult.
The French authorities introduced the HADOPI law,which was partially blocked by opposition parties and pressure groups and eventually amended to its current form.I guess you could argue they make original bills draconian because they know they will have to yield to these amendments,and it also means they can squeeze in a few less obvious small print.
The authorities were meant to enforce this bill,but as usual..the rhetoric for small government and maybe that they had friends on the board of TMP,it was subcontracted out.TMP then suffered a few data breaches,which i would extrapilate as 'if you sell confidential customer data to marketing companies it always easier to pretend you were attacked by 14 year old hackers...after all ..not that many people are mugged for their mobile phones,but its a great way to upgrade'
Anyway,there will be a TMG by another name in your country,TMP is mainly based in Central Europe...people do good things for bad reasons,and bad things for good reasons...you could argue that The Bill Gates Foundation is doing lots of good things in Africa ..or that its used to dump repackaged obsolete medicines and promote biotech and the fact Africa is the only continent that is not losing market share to Linux.
TMP has a website http://tmg.eu/sitetmg.html i leave it to your independent thinking
Edit-Not sure why i keep calling them TMP its a pretty unconscious thing..maybe im not entirely convinced of the 'guard' ...wonder what i mean by the 'p'
