Consultation on Evaluation of procedural and jurisdictional aspects of EU merger control

A debate has recently emerged on the effectiveness of these purely turnover-based jurisdictional thresholds, specifically on whether they allow to capture all transactions which can potentially have an impact in the internal market. This may be particularly significant in certain sectors, such as the digital and pharmaceutical industries, where the acquired company, while having generated little turnover as yet, may play a competitive role, hold commercially valuable data, or have a considerable market potential for other reasons.

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.
