Serving, promoting and protecting the legal interests of public service media, the Union and its Members

What we do

In a fast-changing technological, political and regulatory environment, we advise our Members on specific legal issues, offering practical solutions in the fields of EU and national competition, copyright and media law that are specific to their needs. We analyse proposals, explore the implications with legislators and promote a legal framework which allows our Members to operate with optimum efficiency whilst continuing to contribute to the democratic, social and cultural needs of society. We also manage EBU membership and statutory matters and advise on all EBU contracts, including the Eurovision Song Contest, sports, news and networks.
