Press Release: EU support helps Euronews to broaden its coverage of European affairs, but funding needs to be better monitored

​The EU’s support of an average of €24.5 million a year has helped Euronews to develop a unique business model and broadcast programmes on EU affairs in a number of languages, according to a new rapid case review by the European Court of Auditors. However, most citizens in the EU are unable to access it, as the channel is not a public service broadcaster in any Member State. Moreover, the auditors identified shortcomings in the way the European Commission monitors the performance of Euronews against agreed objectives and commitments made.

Press Release: Latvia’s decision to suspend broadcast of the Russian language channel “Rossiya RTR” complies with EU law

The European Commission decided, on 3 May 2019, that the Latvian regulator’s decision to suspend for three months the retransmission of a Russian language channel “Rossiya RTR”, due to incitement to hatred, is compatible with EU law. The decision has been notified today to the Member States

The Latvian authorities informed the Commission in March 2019 that the Russian language channel “Rossiya RTR”, broadcasting to Latvia from Sweden, had been broadcasting content that could be deemed as incitement to hatred. The language used during some programmes on “Rossiya RTR” referred to military confrontations and contained unambiguous calls for, and threats of, indiscriminate violence, occupation or destruction in foreign countries, including the Baltic states. The Latvian authorities therefore decided to suspend the retransmission of the channel for three months.

Press Release: #DigitalYou – Digital Shopping

The Digital Single Market has made it easier for consumers and retailers to buy and sell online.

Since December 2018, online shops can no longer refuse you their goods or services based on your nationality or where you live. For example, if you are in Spain and want to buy a product that’s only available on the German version of a website, you will be able to do so. If you want to book a hotel room or rent a car in another EU country, the hotel or car rental company must offer you the same price as it would to a resident of that country, and you will no longer be re-directed to a website in your own country that does not have the same offer. This is one of the many ways shopping online has been made fairer and easier.

Press Release: A step forward towards Standard Identifiers to simplify audiovisual content exchange

As more and more content is being produced and available online, there is an increasing need to identify and track this content. Audiovisual standard identifiers (ID) provide the solution to simplify rights management and digital distribution, and to facilitate content exchange and discoverability for professionals and fans alike.

Audiovisual standard IDs benefit the audiovisual industry and provide a common language that allows the easy identification of content globally, not only within an organisation or country.

Press Release: Copyright reform clears final hurdle – Commission welcomes approval of modernised rules fit for digital age

Today the Council of the European Union gave its green light to the new Copyright Directive which will bring concrete benefits to citizens, the creative sectors, the press, researchers, educators, and cultural heritage institutions.

The reform will adapt copyright rules to today’s world, where music streaming services, video-on-demand platforms, news aggregators and user-uploaded-content platforms have become the main gateways to access creative works and press articles. It was proposed by the Commission in September 2016 and voted by the European Parliament in March 2019.
