RD257 - ETNO Reflection Document on the Audiovisual Media Services Directive proposal – Post European Parliament first reading and adoption of Council “general approach”

Following completion of the EP’s First Reading and adoption of a “General Approach” by the Council, ETNO believes that a number of issues still need be addressed in order to avoid unintended consequences and mitigate the harmful effects of the Directive’s extension to on-demand services.  The definitions in Article 1 of the future Directive require particular attention.  

The Council also needs to defend the country-of-origin principle as defined in the E-Commerce Directive, and to take account of the impractical nature of EP proposals with regard to protection of minors, the right of reply, promotion of European productions and quantitative restrictions on advertising.
