Those crazy French.
According to a recent article in the London Times, France’s pre-Internet ban on alcohol advertising means they can’t link to anything alcoholic online.
That means that if I were in France, I couldn’t link to Borgognes-Faively or Vins du Beaujolais (Beaujolais Wines) or even Domaine Stéphane Aladame, let alone visit them. (Holland's Heineken Beer website was forced to block access from all French computers.)
Good God, I’m violating French alcohol laws! Won’t somebody stop me?!?!
(So is it a violation of those laws to ask one of those wineries to send me a couple bottles for pimping their website?) (Wine photo from London Telegraph.)
