[A2k] Europe Wants 20% European Content on Netflix

Hi,



Fascinating - especially given that in France it appears that there is a fair movement against the Loi Toubon quotas implemented a good few years back on radio. Clearly the format is different, but the argument<http://www.lemonde.fr/actualite-medias/article/2015/09/25/chanson-francophone-les-radios-montent-le-ton-contre-le-durcissement-des-quotas_4771286_3236.html> runs that this tended to lead to only a small number of French songs being played repeatedly on some stations, while elsewhere the quality of output fell given the protection the quotas offered from competition. And of course the most successful artists sang in English anyway...



Thanks,



Stephen

Hi,



South African Broadcasting Corporation recently made a decision that 90% of music played on radio has to be local content. The draft Copyright Bill proposed 80% but I have been told it may be 70% in the revised Bill which is due to go to Cabinet very soon.

See: http://mg.co.za/article/2016-05-12-sa-music-to-dominate-radio-as-sabc-announces-90-local-policy







Regards

Denise

Europe thinks Internet is cable. Note that this dovetails exactly with cable TV tradition as well as the notion of the broadcasters treaty
