“I want Europe to embrace the opportunities it creates. But I also want us to make sure that we support creativity and cultural diversity. We owe it to creators. And we owe it to ourselves as this is vital in preserving and strengthening our cultural identity as Europeans.”, concludes Commissioner Tibor Navracsics in his key-note speech at the annual conference on European Media Law in Brussels. (full speech here.)

The Audiovisual Media Service Directive (AVMSD) and the new proposals from the European Commission have been discussed with practitioners. The cross-border aspects of media landscape has also been part of the discussion as well as the review of the Satellite and Cable Directive (SatCab). Additionally a follow-up of the public consultation on the role of online platforms and the latest jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Union was presented. Finally, the annual conference on European Media Law gave media service providers an overview about competition law issues relevant for the audiovisual service sector, fundamental rights and data protection facing media and technical convergence. The restriction to media pluralism in some member states was a topic of discussion as well as the application of the rule of law in the EU.
