The BBC – where we go from here

Chairman's speech to Voice of the Listener & Viewer's annual Autumn Conference

hLooking at international comparisons, the number of reputable providers of broadcast news and print journalism doesn't seem too unhealthy at present, and of course the internet has broadened the range of available news sources. 

But the problem may be one further down the road, as the market changes. If giants like Google and Apple continue to grow at their current rate they will become more and more powerful and will acquire more and more influence over the way people use different media on a day-to-day basis. They may come to control the so-called 'gateways' that people use to get to news and other programmes.h

Observations on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and the future of the European Union

Viviane Reding Vice-President of the European Commission, EU Justice Commissioner

XXV Congress of FIDE (Fédération Internationale pour le Droit Européen) Tallinn, 31 May 2012

 (The third case concerned the Hungarian media law where there were serious concerns, notably about the lack of independence of the new Hungarian media authority from the government. Here, the Commission was faced with the legal situation that the EU has only very minor competences with regard to the media. Press and radio are practically outside the scope of the EU Treaties, as is most media content. Only for the provision of cross-border audiovisual media services, certain minimum rules are included in the Audiovisual Media Services Directive. However, these rules do not include a legal requirement that each Member State establish an independent media regulator. The Commission had proposed such a rule in 2005, on my initiative. However, only Latvia, the Netherlands and the UK supported my proposal, while all other Member States rejected it as an undue interference with their national prerogatives. This is why the Commission could only insist on some marginal changes to the Hungarian media law where these were related to audiovisual media services. On the key issue, the independence of the media authority and its role vis-à-vis the written press, the Commission had no power. Certainly, Article 11 of the Charter provides for freedom of expression, freedom of information and freedom of the media. However, under Article 51 of the Charter, this only applies to national decisions where the Member State implements EU law. This was not the case for most of the articles in the Hungarian media law. One can argue that, even in this case, there was some complementarity between the EU Charter and national fundamental rights - Because, on 19 December 2011, the Hungarian Constitutional Court declared that certain provisions of the Hungarian media law unconstitutionally limited the freedom of the written press. Nevertheless, not all observers of this case were convinced that the matter had been fully resolved and that freedom of the media continues to be fully respected in Hungary. I personally will only trust this complementarity if I am assured that the judiciary in Hungary is and remains fully independent following the recent constitutional changes. The Commission will continue to monitor this very closely.)

Digital Agenda: Commission adopts first report on the application of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive

f Media freedom and pluralism are essential features of democratic societies and explicitly recognised by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union as an element of the right to freedom of expression and information. Notably when using the possibility of Article 4(1) AVMSD to apply stricter rules to the providers under their jurisdiction, Member States have to comply with these fundamental principlesf, eThese considerations also formed the basis of the discussions between the Commission and the Hungarian authorities on the new media legislation as regards the obligation of balanced coverage and the rules on offensive content. Some modifications were also agreed between the Commission and the Hungarian authorities on other provisions which could constitute an infringement of the AVMSD and/or the rules on free circulation of services and establishmentf; hybrid broadcast/broadband platforms

Private actions in competition law - a consultation on options for reform

The core reforms considered in this consultation are: Allowing the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) to hear more kinds of competition cases and granting it additional powers to allow SMEs to quickly and cheaply challenge behaviour that is restricting their ability to grow. / Introducing an opt-out collective actions regime for competition law, which would enable consumers and businesses to collectively bring a case to obtain redress for shared losses / Promoting Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to ensure that the courts are the option of last resort / Ensuring private actions complement the public enforcement regime, in particular by protecting the incentives provided for companies to whistle-blow on cartels
