You are invited to the first meeting of the Working Group Media and Public Service Media.

The starting point of the discussion will be my post on World TV Day https://elfr-blog.eu/world-tv-day-2021, particularly the aspect of broadcast TV v. big tech and social media. The relevant quote is shown after the Zoom meeting details.

Hope that many of you can make it. The meeting is for its participants, so please to let me know your preferences and suggestions.

The session will be recorded, so that it can be shared with group members who may not participate due to other commitments.

Quote from https://elfr-blog.eu/world-tv-day-2021:

Broadcasters, public or commercial, terrestrial or satellite, operate under similar constraints: defined national or regional territories, with similar regulatory regimes (government issued licenses, regulations defining their remit and acceptable content) and similar technical requirements. Above all, they pay tax on their earnings.

On the other hand, broadcasters’ main competitors, big tech and social media, don’t have any of the regulatory or technical constraints. All they need are server farms and access to the Internet. They can operate across borders without licensing, they can access unlimited amounts of content from traditional media, earning a large income in the process (without sharing it with the source media) – while managing to pay no tax, or on a fraction of their earnings, in the most accommodating tax shelter available.
