Geoblocking - cross-sectoral letter on ongoing trilogue negotiations

We represent companies and associations of right holders active in Europe’s audiovisual, film, music, and video-game sectors. Our members include: music authors, producers, publishers and online services; commercial broadcasters; film and TV producers; distributors and publishers of film and TV content; cinema operators, digital technology companies; video game developers and publishers; and sports rights owners. Together, the European copyright sectors generate 15.2 million jobs via direct and indirect employment and contribute approximately €914.6 billion to the EU economy.

In view of the ongoing trilogue negotiations with the Parliament, we urge the Council and the Commission fully to exclude intangible digital content and audiovisual services from the scope of the Regulation and its mandated review. Negotiations should be based on what has been soundly evaluated in the Commission’s public consultation and Impact Assessment. Without your support, Europe’s creative industries, consumers and digital services may be irreparably harmed.
