FERA reaction to EP Plenary vote on Broadcasting Regulation JURI mandate

Press releases 2017-12-12


The EU film and directors community welcomes the result of the plenary vote on the Broadcasting "SatCab" Regulation today which confirmed the mandate for negotiations drawn up by the Legal Affairs Committee in November.

In its mission as co-legislator, the European Parliament reflects the diversity of European citizens themselves : today, it has ensured the sustainability of the European audiovisual sector’s cultural and linguistic diversity in the digital era by supporting an approach which preserves territorial exclusivity, cornerstone for financing and distribution of European audiovisual works.

We call on the Member States to follow in the EP footsteps in that regard, but also to provide European authors with a sustainable legal framework ensuring their fair remuneration for the retransmission of their works.
