FILE - This April 3, 2009, file photo shows French first lady Carla Bruni, right,and her husband French President Nicolas Sarkozy arriving at the Kurhaus in Baden-Baden, Germany,for a NATO function. A thousand French Internet users a day could be taken off-line following approval of Sarkozy's pet project -- an unprecedented law to cut the Internet connections of people who repeatedly pirate music and movies. As the husband of the supermodel-turned-pop star and friend to France's most powerful media figures, Sarkozy has long basked in his cozy ties to the entertainment industry, which welcomes the measure. .
