Liberalizing the European Media

This chapter presents a discussion on the audiovisual battleground and the diverse of effects of information liberalization in the information society. This chapter provides a historic and descriptive account of Roberto Barzanti's call for community action after the Treaty of the Commission of the European Communities has failed to govern the political rights of the citizens of the European Union. This failure to govern has led the European audiovisual market to decline. Barzanti, former president of the European Parliament Committee on Youth, Culture, Education, Media, and Sport claims that the solution to the botched European audiovisual market lies on the solid support from the Community. He pointed out that the audiovisual industries of the United States are the predator which devours the European Union's audiovisual industry. Barzanti then proposed various mechanisms which, surprisingly, pointed them back to the anti-competitive market structures which were first considered as the cause of the decline.
