LE FIGARO – A key measure is the removal of Hadopi and the establishment of a fine of 60 euros for repeat pirates. This system was fine retoqué by the Constitutional Council in 2006.
Pierre Lescure – In 2006, the government established a special ticket for infringement of copyright, which flouted the principle of equality. Today, we offer a standard fine for negligence after three warnings to unscrupulous users under the graduated response. We keep this graduated response which demonstrated its effectiveness.
You instituez a tax on PCs, smartphones, tablets. She replaces the tax for private copying?
Not. We make the observation that the tax for private copying is an essential part of financing the creation as it relates to 200 million euros per year. But this tax is based on the storage capacity of the terminals. But the revolution that uses the Internet no longer store their content, but they have more direct access to the network via permanent access to cloud computing1. We therefore believe that in three to five years, the revenue from the tax for private copying could disappear. We can not wait for that idle. So we propose to support the system with a very low tax rate of 1% on a very broad base of connected devices which represents a market of 8.5 billion euros. This allows more to restore justice since fiscal concerns products manufactured by international Internet giants who do not participate in the financing of creation no fax payday loan. If the tax for private copying declines actually, this new tax will gradually take over. The goal is to keep in time about 200 million in revenue for creation.
Want to move the video window to request a subscription to 18 months against 36 months. A boost for Netflix and Amazon?
This system was absurd. It was to charge customers for access to films already released in free TV! To start this service, it must make available to users as soon as 18 months is between the window broadcasts Canal + and the free channels. If the video on demand subscription developed in France, the French players will benefit. We never imagined that foreign players do not come to France. As for the video on demand, it would be logical to move the window of availability of movies to 3 months after the theatrical release against four months now. And for some movies, I propose a meeting under the auspices of the CNC board to rule on a case to advance the release date.
Should he not sell or Dailymotion Yahoo!?
I can not imagine that an operator such as France Telecom could not find a better place than to sell 75% stake in Yahoo! agreement. The position of Arnaud Montebourg 2a is messy, but in the background, I quite agree with him.

Halving child allowances for families of two children whose incomes are above 53,000 euros? The proposal of the Socialist MP Gerard Bapt, supported by his colleague Pascal Terrasse, has caused confusion in PS. "Bapt, is a maverick," says Rue de Solferino on. Translate: This is a personal initiative of the rapporteur of the Social Security budget, not a trial balloon launched at the request of the government. Same reaction in the entourage of the Minister of Family, Dominique Bertinotti, which speaks of a process "completely independent."
The President of the PS group in the National Assembly, Bruno Le Roux, tried to stop what he called the "Concours Lépine the best idea." "I'm not one for throwing ideas inevitably ask, and sometimes even have a dimension anxiety for the French, he said. There will be guidelines proposed by the government, I will respond. "
"This is an avenue that involves only Gérard Bapt," added Thierry Mandon, welcoming all as his colleague "act abandoning the taxation of allowances" Sunday already dismissed by the Minister of Health Marisol Touraine.
"We need to stop playing with fire"
"We think would win in a comprehensive way in these matters of family policy, said the member Indre-et-Loire Laurent Baumel, founder of the popular Left. There are benefits, there are also family quotient … The real question we are asked, and did not start today is: how to articulate a family policy and social justice? How to find a balance point? This is a real issue that deserves a better debate punctual. "Far microphones, some elected Socialists were even more severe. "We need to stop playing with fire and worry about the middle class," got upset one of them.
For its part, the right is given to heart's content. "Taxing family allowances, this is a funny way of giving a hand, taking with the other, which goes against the spirit of French family policy," said François Fillon on RTL bad credit payday advance. View shared by Jean-Francois Cope. "The irresponsibility continues blithely, he was indignant. Socialists still only see the economic policy of our country than through tax increases. "
According to the president of the UMP, "everything is done to dismantle the family policy", "yet recognized throughout Europe," but that the Socialists have "always hated."
On an ironic, UMP deputy from Drôme Hervé Mariton Gerard Bapt hailed a "brave fellow" who "has the merit of putting wealth to 4500 euros per month." According to him, at this level, "it is in the upper middle class, but not rich." "Family policy should not be the adjustment variable budget difficulties," has for its part indigné Benoist Appeared. "If the government means-tested benefits, and then removes them, explained the UMP Marne is a major policy change for our country and for our family policy. Reduce public spending, it goes through operational savings. "
For Christian Jacob, "the universality of family allowances is an area that has always been consensus between left and right for years." François Hollande accused of "breaking family policy," the boss of UMP deputies nonetheless acknowledged that his group was "not unanimous" on the issue. Among these dissenting voices are those of the former Labour Minister Xavier Bertrand and Bruno Le Maire, which had included the setting-tested family allowances in the first draft of the project for the UMP in 2012. A proposal that was removed from the final version due to lack of consensus.

A-How the scandal broke
The scandal broke in three stages. Mid-January, the British health authorities discover that certified pure beef burgers produced in Ireland contain horse meat. Ten days later, we learn that British horse carcasses contaminated with a prohibited medication, were sold in France in 2012. No direct link between these two events, but these scandals cast doubt on the reliability of the European System of traceability of meat. Alerted by a subcontractor, the Swedish giant test conducted on its products and announces the beginning of February and have found horsemeat in his lasagna, first in the United Kingdom and France. The company also withdrew its precaution moussaka and shepherd's pie in several European countries.
B – The protagonists of the "case Findus"
• Comigel and clients
It is not that Findus Product lasagna offending, but French subcontractor based in Metz, Comigel. The company itself has alerted its customer in Sweden when she realized, after investigation, that the meat used by one of its subsidiaries in Luxembourg, Tavola, came from slaughterhouses Romanian producing both beef and horse.
The involvement of Comigel gives a new dimension to the scandal since the company produces ready meals for at least 28 companies in 13 different countries, including major retailers such as Picard, Carrefour, Auchan, Monoprix, etc..
"Horse meat: recipes vary depending on the brand
It is this French company meat processing which provided Tavola meatloaf fraudulent. According to the Minister for Consumer Benoît Hamon, the company has changed the labeling of horse meat Romanian "Meat Beef EU origin." His boss, Bartholomew Aguerre, denies fraud. According to him, "the government has gone too fast" in the accusations Thursday.
According to the French anti-fraud agency (DGCCRF), 750 tons of meat falsely labeled beef that came out of the factory Spanghero located in the southwest of France. Some 550 tonnes were delivered to Tavola who cooked dishes with 4.5 million the meat. Potential recipients of the remaining 200 tons were not identified. It is not clear whether only lasagna are affected.

The economic woes of PSA Peugeot-Citroen could take a new turn. According to the newspaper Libération, the State would look more closely at the input of capital PSA, if the group fails – despite concessions – to stem its losses. Elysian source said that whatever happens, the state will not let PSA go bankrupt. This morning on the radio RMC, this option is "possible, if only because the ISP (note, Strategic Investment Fund) exists."
A good knowledge of the company says, however, that PSA is already de facto guardianship of the State, to the extent that a guarantee of EUR 7 billion was awarded in October to the bank's internal group. A symbolic boost that gives the state a lot more than just look at PSA. The episode Louis Gallois, who had been nominated to the Supervisory Board of the group, also confirms this trend.
Bankruptcy PSA, "no news"
The question of "bankruptcy" PSA is not feasible in the near future. The boss of the group, Philippe Varin intends to meet – and successfully – its savings plan, decorated supressions 11,000 positions in France. He said his measures would stabilize PSA accounts, which should return to the green end of 2014.
Thursday evening, the group announced that it has massively lowered the value of its shares to 4.7 billion euros, less than a week before the announcement of its results in 2012, which will be announced next Wednesday credit score. This gives a new insight into the very worrying situation of the group. Louis Gallois, who took office at the end of last December, must complete its report by the end of the month.
The government, concerned about the governance of the group
The Elysee is also concerned by the tensions within the Peugeot family, which hamper the smooth functioning of the group. Thierry Peugeot, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of PSA, would retain the monopoly of the group. But his cousin Robert, the head of the family holding company, recommends a merger between PSA and Opel. This idea had already failed merger last November.
Another important point: the Peugeot family can not decide what spell book Philippe Varin, whose term ends in May. Rumors – always denied – that the family would like to thank are not new, but they are particularly hear right now. Varin to replace the head of the group, the state would have thought Louis Gallois, who on his side that he was not interested.

The agreement to limit excess fees doctors will finally be implemented on the ground, but it has never attracted much opposition. Since its signing in October, two of the three doctors' unions have initialed the text have changed sides. And especially CSMF, the largest, which claims to be "into resistance" since Medicare has changed the text it validated "machine sanctions" in the definition of its implementing rules.
At the center of the problem, 150% intended to define an overflow considered abusive compared to Safely prices. The signatories felt that this ceiling should be a "landmark" and yet tempered by other criteria (location of the firm's reputation doctor …). But in the end, the 5% of physicians practicing overtaking the higher their department be questioned by the authorities.
If the interpretation of the agreement by Medicare seems much too harsh taste of doctors, it is not enough for patients. The Collective interassociative Health (CISS) denounces "a genuine license abuse" given to doctors. The influential association highlights including the famous 150% will be calculated an average "for an indefinite period." Clearly, physicians will continue to practice high levels of passing on part of their patient base (easiest) while exempting another.
A "bet" for additional
The plot thickens a bit more if we include the debate more than the opinion of some observers mixed, not least, in the industry business card templates. "We can share a doubt that there are many other sanctions and that sanctions if there are, they significantly reduce the overall level of overruns," criticizes Didier Tabuteau, Chair Health Sciences Po Paris. "Everything will depend on the application will be made by Medicare, agrees to share Brigitte Dormont, a health economist at the University of Paris-Dauphine. But the original text is not very dangerous for practitioners. Instead, it confirms that the excess fees up to 100% Safely prices are normal. "
The Economist refers in particular to the second part of the agreement on the contract for access to care. This will be offered from next week practitioners whose prices are less than or equal to 100% of the rate Safely. In exchange for reduced charges, the practitioner should moderate their prices, but it may break the contract after a year if not longer satisfied.
As for complementary health, they either do not believe that the agreement makes miracles. -They now call the "bet". It will actually wait until July to see if doctors adhere to contract for access to care. And even longer – six months or a year? – To see the first drop sanctions against doctors who "abuse".

Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, made a special trip to the Élysée Palace to sign the agreement on Friday night between newspaper publishers and search engine. After tense negotiations conducted by Nathalie Collin, president of the Press Association of political and general information (IPG), by Marc Schwartz, negotiator appointed by the French government, and Carlo d'Asaro Biondo, President Southern Europe and Eastern Google, the two sides found common ground.
The agreement is based on two feet. Firstly a trade agreement optional five years will allow publishers to use all digital platforms of Google at attractive conditions. The other point is the creation of a fund for innovation in the digital press with 60 million euros by Google. This fund projects designed to facilitate the transition to the digital press political and general information.
The fund selects projects to fund digital media according to criteria of innovation and economic viability. The Board of Directors of the Fund shall consist of representatives of Google and publishers, as well as independent personalities. The use of funds will be monitored by an independent external auditor. The financing fund will be open to all points of politics and general news as well as subsidiary of large media groups and pure players like Médiapart or Rue 89.
The signing of this agreement therefore justifies the creation of a statutory right neighbor. The legislation would have required a long and difficult debate for a solution that would take the risk of being exceeded only adopted because the digital world is moving. The government, moreover, reflects the way of imposing Net giants like Google, Apple or Amazon to tax on French territory, knows that this process is complicated.
"All the publishers of general press and political welcomed the agreement with Google. This is a world first and an agreement that will allow publishers through investment and innovation to make their digital transformation that is vital for the entire industry. The editors thank the President of the Republic, which introduced the principle of dialogue between the general press and Google payday loans. They also thank Aurélie Filippetti, Minister of Culture and Communication, and Flower Pellerin, Minister of Technological Innovation, "said Nathalie Collin.
"The negotiations were strained and were conducted every night this past week and the agreement was signed on Friday. The decisions were taken directly to the board and approved by Google Larry Page, and CEO Eric Schmidt, the chairman, "said Marc Schwartz, the negotiator appointed by the government.
This is the epilogue of the ongoing wrangle between the French newspaper publishers and Internet giant Google in September. At that time, Nathalie Collin, supported by all the leaders of the national dailies, regional magazine, found that after three years of fruitless discussions with Google about a better distribution of the value created by the indexing of content press, it was time to go on the offensive.
Newspaper publishers have proposed the creation of a neighboring right pensionable pay publishers each time a search engine indexes an article. The government has thrown its weight threatening Google to legislate on the issue if an agreement was not reached between the two parties by the end of January. President François Hollande has even reiterated his threat, when his wishes to the press on January 16.
Negotiations between Google and news publishers conducted by Marc Schwartz were stormy. But Google executives intended to reach an agreement to try to extinguish the fire that ignited the press in Europe.
Across Europe, the revolt of the press groups grows. German publishers had paved the way in summer 2012 by submitting to parliament a law (Lex Google) enabling revenue sharing on items picked up by Google News. Then publishers Swiss, Italian and Belgian rallied movement.
