Calls to drop language quotas for French radio stations watch

    • Thread Starter


    Under French law, 40 percent of all music played on national radio must be performed in the French language.
    The law was introduced two decades ago to stop an invasion of English language songs and to protect the national music industry.
    But as Al Jazeera's Neave Barker reports from Paris, many feel the law should no longer apply.

    The French are incredibly protective of their language. Did you know, that in France, French text on advert signs has to be much larger than the text in other languages? French is a beautiful language, but it seems this overprotection is stifling the exchange of culture and foreign ideas.
