New Issue of European Media Policy

The August issue of Nordicom's newsletter European Media Policy is out. The newsletter provides an update on policy developments at the European level, concentrating on news from the European Union.

Here's some of the contents in no. 2/2017:

  • Those eagerly awaiting an EU decision on a reduced VAT rate for electronic publications will have to wait a bit longer.
  • There seems to have been a turnaround in the European Parliament on some of the hot topics in the controversial EU copyright reform. Publishers may have reason to be happy.
  • What to do about the proliferation of fake news has been much discussed by policymakers in recent months. A tricky policy issue.
  • EU legislators say that social media must tackle hate videos. But it seems easier said than done.
  • The EU Council and Parliament have not only embraced the Commission’s proposed extension of audiovisual rules to online platforms but also made more stringent demands on them.
  • Reactions to the proposed changes to the EU ePrivacy directive have been mixed. Publishers don’t seem very happy.
