Legal frameworks are rather annoying for global online giants. In Germany they get a prefix.
Media policy is a matter for Germany in Germany. It takes a long time to find solutions. Now, after five years, the countries have finalized a media state treaty laying down ground rules for the digital world. What is in it?
Dhe Media State Treaty is next to the reform of public service broadcasting, the most important media policy project in recent years, "said the Media Secretary of Rhineland-Palatinate, Heike Raab (SPD). "Our media landscape is not in spite of, but because of their rules so varied and high quality. The Media State Treaty is therefore no less important than to make this system fit for the future and preserve it in its diversity. "
With the reform of public service broadcasting, the countries have reached a dead end through the index model, but the media state treaty has achieved a respectable result after five years of intensive debate, expert hearings, controversial discussions and two drafts. This legal framework for the digital media world is a blueprint for a European solution, as media platforms and intermediaries have not been regulated in the EU as yet.
