New Audiovisual Markets Regulated?

The Dutch Ministry is hosting a seminar on the AVMS Directive together with European Audiovisual Observatory on 16 June 2011.

The Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science, in her capacity as minister responsible for the Presidency of the European Audiovisual Observatory 2011, is pleased to announce the seminar New Audiovisual Markets Regulated? Market innovation and the role of regulation in the Netherlands and Europe, which will take place on the 16th of June.

Theme of the day

The national audiovisual markets of European countries are moving towards an increasingly integrated European market and legal system, which is regulated by a pan European legal framework. This adds to the importance of European cooperation in the media sector.

This seminar seeks to further this objective by bringing scientists, representatives of companies and governments together in order to facilitate the exchange of experiences, views, lessons learned and best practices.

The seminar will focus on describing and discussing the main trends in the European audiovisual market and the legal consequences of those changes. Furthermore, given the central role of innovation and the growing importance of online distribution of audiovisual content, three keynote speakers from UPC, Google and Philips will share their views on the opportunities, threats and consequences of the major trend to switch to on-demand services.
