EBU makes recommendations for reform of competition law.

The EBU’s latest position paper addresses the ongoing process of reform of competition law. At a time when online platforms act as bottlenecks for how consumers can access products and services including PSM content, competition authorities must make a value judgment on what needs to be changed. This position paper makes five key reform recommendations to policymakers: 

  1. Acknowledge that competition is not only driven by price; 
  2. Exercise effective merger control in cases involving global platforms; 
  3. Ensure that competition enforcement is conducive to PSM innovation; 
  4. Ensure that competition authorities use all the tools they have at their disposal; and 
  5. Enact rules to fill the gaps that competition enforcement leaves open.
