Interview with Olaf Wolters: “media.connect Mittendrin” newsletter.

The February 2017 “media.connect Mittendrin” newsletter of media.connect brandenburg includes an interview with BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT partner Olaf Wolters. He will host the annual producers’ brunch (13.02.2017) which this year examines the issue of “Portability for online services and cross-border broadcasting of radio programmes: Who benefits and who doesn’t?”. In the interview, Wolters refers to the various effects expected to result from the new EU Regulation on cross-border portability of online content services as part of the EU “Digital Single Market” initiative. Olaf Wolters: “The EU wants to extend the European single market to the internet to benefit consumers, which sounds like a great idea. Whether it’s a good idea for providers though, remains to be seen. There has long been good reason to provide specific content to local markets only.” You can read the full interview in the newsletter which can be found at.
