France Proposes New Rules for Internet Equal Access | NYTimes.com

France Proposes New Rules for Internet Equal Access | NYTimes.com | The France News Net - Latest stories | Scoop.it

The French government on Tuesday called for a law requiring Internet service providers to give all the traffic on their networks equal priority, saying existing rules were insufficient for protecting free speech online and ensuring fair competition among Web publishers.

 

The proposal would mark a big shift in French policy and a break with existing European Union practice on the thorny issue of so-called net neutrality. And though almost certain to meet resistance from some Internet service providers, it could fuel calls for similar rules throughout the 27-country European Union.

 

The issue came to a head in France in January, when one service provider, Free, temporarily blocked users from seeing advertising sold by Google until the government ordered Free to restore access.

 

The proposal, by a French government advisory panel and endorsed by the minister overseeing digital commerce, pits companies that build and operate telecommunications systems against Internet players that rely on the networks to deliver their content to consumers. The French proposal would still need to be drafted as legislation and taken up by Parliament.

FRANCE: French fish farmers take stand against land animal protein in feed

FRANCE: French fish farmers take stand against land animal protein in feed | The France News Net - Latest stories | Scoop.it

French fish producers have said  they will not use non-ruminant processed animal proteins (PAPs), even though these will be allowed back for use in the European Union as of June 1, reported Ouest France.

 

Using PAPs would help fish farmers save around 20% on feed costs, said the newspaper.

 

However, the fish producers’ association has decided to specify in its quality charter that all fish is and will be fed 100% on fish and vegetables, Jean-Yves Colleter, head of the Federation française aquacole and vice president of the Comite interprofessionnel des produits de l’aquaculture, told Ouest France. 

 

With just under 500 sites, France is Europe’s third largest freshwater trout producer, with harvests of around 36,000 metric tons a year. Seawater production — turbot, seabream and seabass, mainly — is smaller, at 36,000t, covering only 15 hectares.

 

Aquaculture producers hope to expand the space they will have through regional schemes.
