[CSM] Forbidden in France: the words 'Twitter' and 'Facebook'

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 
Quote:
A new French law forbids domestic TV and radio broadcasters from using the names of the two American social media giants in an attempt to prevent 'clandestine advertising.' But media experts and commentators call the ban 'chauvinist,' 'out of touch,' and 'stupid.'
Quote:
France's Superior Audiovisual Council member Christine Kelly looks on as she is interviewed by reporters, in Paris, June 6. Broadcasters in France must not use promotional lines like 'Follow us on Twitter' or 'Find us on Facebook' on the air because they violate a ban on secret advertising, a regulator says.

I think its a forward thinking by French government!

I've heard those lines so much I don't even listen to them anymore. I don't see a reason why you can't do that, though. How is it secret? They'll probably be tagged at the end of an ad that the company paid airtime for, or the end of a show with a popular host. I never had a problem with it, why should they?

by the way, they are not banning these social networks from the country, they just don't want to give preferential treatment to anyone.Plus in this "sue anybody the way you want" world, tomorrow some small time French social network might sue the TV station

Lol wow... Might as well make a list of companies and websites that are illegal to say the names on. I don't like twitter or facebook either.. but I can't see this law lasting for long, or being enforced.
