approved a measure in
July to require both social
networks and search
engines to remove hate
speech within 24 hours
of a confirmed violation.
The provision is part of a
broader bill on internet
regulation and focuses

inciting terrorism, hate,
or violent, racial or
religious abuse.

French President Emmanuel
Macron recently signed a law
to impose a 3% tax on the revenue of technology giants,
including Facebook and
Amazon. The law focuses on
digital transactions and will
affect companies with at least
750 euros in global revenue
and French revenue of
25 million euros. It will
be retroactive to January.
President Trump has threatened retaliatory tariffs on
French wine. The U.S. Trade
Representative office has
argued that the law amounts
to de facto discrimination
against U.S. companies.
