Well, use the French Constitution. It says that anything that becomes
a de facto monopoly must be nationalized.

  But the constitution seems to have been lost in a drawer somewhere...


Tout bien, toute entreprise, dont l'exploitation a ou acquiert les
caractères d'un service public national ou d'un monopole de fait, doit
devenir la propriété de la collectivité
 Préambule de la Constitution du 27 octobre 1946 de la République
Française, repris dans la Constitution de 1958
