How to make portability work?

27 April 2016 | 08:30 - 10:00 European Parliament

On 9 December 2015, the Commission proposed as part of the Digital Single Market Strategy a regulation on content portability of online services. Europe’s commercial broadcasters are at the heart of the issue and are proactively taking part in the public discussion to ensure the right dispositions are put in place to make portability work. As part of this discussion, the ACT organised a policy breakfast in the European Parliament which took a practical approach to the portability discussion.
