Liberalizing the European Media

Shalini Venturelli

Oxford University Press

This chapter attempts to present a clear-cut examination and detailed analysis of the direction of the policies in the information society for content regulation, ownership, intellectual property rights, and audiovisual policy. This chapter argues that the resolution of conflict between people's rights to content production and distribution and proprietary rights will determine the potential of the information age to impact economic growth and the political community. This chapter examines the political implications of the proliferation of the economic incentives intellectual property rights (IPR) concept. This chapter points out that the aforesaid IPR concept is an ordering principle which regulates ownership rights over content in the public sphere. It discusses the Treaty of the Commission of the European Communities which fails to govern the political rights of the citizens of the European Union. The goal of the treaty is merely to regulate the activities of both public and private legal corporate entities.

Keywords:   information society, intellectual property rights, audiovisual policy, proprietary rights, European Union, political rights
