On Absolut website, for all french guys, we are redirect on : http://www.absolut.com/france with a message : "site français en cours de construction" (> french website under construction Wink )



Sounds good !!

Unfortunately, we can't visit absolut.com (what a joke !! lol)

I'm more thinking that it's because of the French restriction on alcohol advertising on the internet.
I think that we will have a very light site where we will only be able to see few things, but far less many than on the .com site.

An example of these restrictions:
Go the the Champagne Perrier Jouët website: http://www.perrier-jouet.com/
And select that you're from France.
You'll have a nice response:
"En raison de la réglementation applicable en France en matière de publicité des boissons alcooliques, vous n'avez pas la possibilité d'accéder à ce site."
Because of the reglementation of France concerning the advertising of alcoholic beverage, you are not allowed to access this site.

Stupid French laws! If they think that forbidding people to go on the site of their favorite brand will make them stop from drinking it!

Just so I fully understand ...     in France , you cannot go to  www.absolut.com   ?
I never thought that France would ever censor certain internet sites .

Before, we could. But recently, we are redirected on http://www.absolut.com/france
Well, it's not really censorship. It's more like obliging the brands to have a special site for France where you have probaby no advertising or no reference to drinking.
The redirection are made by the brands, not by the government directly!

I guess that we'll have to find a proxy server to go and check Absolut news!
