A language protection law is a law that serves to contain foreign words in public spaces. The degree of restrictions varies greatly. Language protection laws were introduced, for example, in France , Poland , Hungary , Romania and Sweden (2009).
The French Language Protection Act of August 4, 1994, for example, limits the use of English-language texts in advertising unless they are registered trademarks.
