Reviewing DSM Strategy Impact on Media Industry
Conference, Wednesday 7th June
mercoledì 07 giugno 2017 ore 17:45 – 20:00
A turning point in the huge debate on the implementation of the Digital Single Market Strategy is approaching. It will impact the business models of media industry and the market equilibria that contents’ providers will have to deal with in the near future.
Last year, through the proposal for a reform of Audiovisual Media Services Directive, traditional broadcasters and new platforms has been seeing the greatest change occurred in their business for the first time in a while.
In line with those changes, in September 2016, I-Com discussed the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission proposal for a Reform of Audiovisual Media Services Directive at its early stage, with a Conference and a a Study (AVMSD Refit or Reform? Audiovisual media services in digital era) analysing the EU market status, critical points of the proposal and its add value.
Now, a new event and a new paper edited by I-Com (Reviewing DSM Strategy Impact on Media Content Industry) aim to extend the investigation to the DSM strategy as a whole, trying to identify and measure its impact on the Media content industry, with a special focus on the last updates of the AVMS and Copyright legislative proposals.
The event will take place in the European Parliament (Room ASP 3H1), on June 7th from 17.45 to 20.00, gathering European Commission officials, Members of the Parliament together with many other stakeholders involved in this wide European legislative framework review.
The upcoming event will be a favourable occasion to move forward in the exam of new margins of competitiveness foreseen by the implementation of a real Digital Single Market in the Audiovisual sector, taking into account the respect of some fundamental principles.
