Radio stations France have been protesting a possible new government rule. DJs were already unhappy a 30-year-old system that requires them to make sure that 40 per cent the songs they play are French. Now the government wants them to make sure the songs French are not the same popular hits. Radio stations could get a fine if they do not follow these rules. Radio company bosses say the new rule will stop French people listening the radio. Many music lovers already choose music streaming services to listen to American or British songs. Moreover, many French artists, such as Daft Punk and Phoenix now sing English so they can be popular globally.

France's government says the new law is to protect its culture American and British influences. It especially wants to stop the English language getting deeper French culture. A spokesman the French music industry said the new law is necessary. He said that if the radio stations were allowed to play whatever songs they wanted, "both the French language and the music would lose ". He added that: "[Radio stations] can't just be allowed to do what they want when it comes to language." A union French musicians said the law is important to protect French musicians. He said: "It remains fundamental French artists to have the chance making a career of music."
