France banned the words Twitter and Facebook

France banned the words Twitter and Facebook rule the radio and television

France banned the delivery of the words "Twitter" and "up" in radio and television, unless they are used in some news about the two online platforms.

That was the reason behind this decision is contained in a decree dating from 1992. Under this decree, the indication of such services, by speaking their names, is an act of publicity. Therefore, references to "Twitter" and "Facebook" is a preferential treatment, inform

Christine Kelly, spokeswoman Consiulului Higher Audiovisual Council (Conseil Superior de l'Audiovisuel / CSA) in France, explained this decision to ban.

"Why should we have a preferential tratatement up, worth billions of dollars, when there are many other social networks that are fighting hard to be recognized?" Said Christine Kelly for the newspaper L'Express. "It would be a distortion of competition. If we allow that Facebook and Twitter to be cited directly, we will open Pandora's box - other social networking will complain and say, 'Why not us?", "Kelly added.

CSA found that "reference to the page viewers and listeners of the show on an online social networking, without citing that social networking, presents an informative". "Instead, viewers and listeners to send the page, indicating that the social network was created, is an advertising" contrary to the decree of March 1992, which "prohibits illegal advertising."

Following this decision, criticism emerged immediately in the blogosphere. Blogger Matthew assigned new restrictions Fraser traditional French policy of protectionism, which manifests itself especially when it comes to "spread" American culture.

In 2003, France banned the use of the word "e-mail" in all government documents and publications.
