Europe's Broadcast Rule in Play
01 November 2005Via Satellite
We wrote in our September column about efforts in Europe to reshape media rules and the various ways these efforts could affect the satellite industry. As we noted, the European Commission had released a series of issues papers on possible changes to the Television Without Frontiers legislative framework and invited comments.
Comments have come flooding into the Commission on many aspects of the proposals. As of mid-September, the Commission had published almost 200 separate submissions. These papers identify two main areas of contention that affect satellite operators and broadcasters.
