The 18 members of France's Conseil National du Numerique (National Digital Council) held their first meeting on 27 April at the Elysee Palace. The consultative body was established to debate policies covering all matters related to the internet. As sought by the industry, the council's deliberations will be made public. The CNN was expected to appoint the CEO of website monetisation and payment solutions provider Rentabiliweb, Jean-Baptiste Descroix-Vernier, as president at the first meeting, writes Les Echos. He is tipped as favourite for the two-year office in light of his independence vis-a-vis telecommunication operators and equipment providers. The body also includes Jerome Stioui (Ad4Screen), Gabrielle Gauthey (Alcatel-Lucent), Bruno Vanryb (Avanquest), Emmanuel Forest (Bouygues), Patrick Bertrand (Cegid), Giuseppe de Martino (Dailymotion), Daniel Marhely (Deezer), Gilles Babinet (Eyeka), François Momboisse (Fevad), Xavier Niel (Free), Marc Simoncini (Meetic), Pierre Louette (Orange), Jean-Pierre Remy (Pages Jaunes), Franck Esser (SFR), Nicolas Voisin (Owni), Alexandre Malsch (Melty.fr) and Marie-Laure Sauty de Chalon (Aufeminin.com). The Office of the President stated that members of the worlds of film and music will be represented via the Ministry of Culture's high council on literary and artistic property.
