According to the Advocate General, Mr Cruz Villalón, the Data Retention Directive is incompatible with the Charter of Fundamental Rights; He proposes, however, that the effects of the finding of invalidity should be suspended in order to enable the EU legislature to adopt, within a reasonable period, the measures necessary to remedy the invalidity found to exist

Media ownership and plurality - Consultation

Media plurality is about the information that people consume on a daily basis, which informs their views and perspective on the world. ‘Media plurality’ means having a diversity of viewpoints available and consumed across the media. In line with Lord Justice Leveson’s recommendations, we want to develop a clear measurement framework in partnership with industry, and carry out the first ever market assessment of plurality in the UK today. This assessment will create a benchmark for the degree of media plurality in the UK today, helping to decide the level that is sufficient, and how to address concerns about media plurality.

At this stage, we want to hear your views on the scope of the measurement framework:

the types of media it should include

the genres it should cover

the types of organisation and services to which it should apply

the inclusion of the BBC

the audiences with which it should be concerned

Policy Report: European Union Competencies in Respect of Media Pluralism and Media Freedom

2013-01-21 EC  

High Level Group on Media Freedom and Pluralism



European and national competition authorities should take into account the specific value of media pluralism in the enforcement of competition rules. They should also take into account the increasing merging of different channels of communication and media access in the definition of the relevant markets. In addition, the High Level Group calls upon the European and national competition authorities to monitor with particular attention, under competition policy, new developments in the online access to information. The dominant position held by some network access providers or internet information providers should not be allowed to restrict media freedom and pluralism. An open and non-discriminatory access to information by all citizens must be protected in the online sphere, if necessary by making use of competition law and/or enforcing a principle of network and net neutrality.


Concentration of ownership needs to be considered not only with respect to specific media sources (such as press), but across different media and in relation to distribution channels, whether for traditional media (for example, newspaper kiosks) or for new media (for example, broadband connectivity).

Digital intermediaries, such as search engines, news aggregators, social networks and app stores should be included in the monitoring of the sector. The increasingly important role they play in either improving or restricting media pluralism should be considered, especially as they start producing content. However, care must be taken to distinguish between media that publish original work directly, and services that allow users to republish or link to other peoples’ work.
