Netflix has been introduced in Europe on a larger scale than it already was on September 16th, 2014. However, the streaming service hasn’t been admitted and accepted easily in all the affected countries.
More recently, the online store giant Amazon faced the same kind of struggles.
Indeed, France chose to make Amazon’s service Kindle Unlimited, the "Netflix for books", illegal.
French law sets a unique price for books and allows a discount of 5% maximum. It is part of a "package" of laws sometimes called the "French exception". It is meant to make culture available for everyone but also to protect people working in the culture field such as booksellers for instance.
Should France change its laws regarding culture and allow services like Netflix and Kindle Unlimited more easily?
