This, from Dr Marlen Komorowski of Cardiff University for the The Media & Society Programme of SMIT. It looks at the way VOD providers are subject to various financial investment obligations (one of the key forms of regulation and incentive that can be used to protect cultural diversity, and drive investment in content that is made specifically for European markets. and it looks particularly at the implementation of the updated AVMS directive (about which there are a number of posts – here).
The full study [pdf] is here. It was presented at a symposium with other studies about VOD providers in Europe. Dr Komorowski’s ream also published a shorter five-page policy brief about the topic [pdf] which is a bit more digestible.
They will be updating the study in October / November and there will be a new version with the updates available soon.
