EBU Legal and Public Affairs Assembly

The second session of the EBU's Legal and Public Affairs Assembly took place at the Union's headquarters in Geneva on 24 October 2011 under the chairmanship of Mr Peter Weber (ZDF).

The Assembly discussed a wide range of legal, policy and lobbying issues covering such areas as Copyright (Orphan Works and Collective Rights Management, in particular), Sport (including the potential impact of the recent FA Premier League v. Karen Murphy case), Public Service Broadcasting, the Digital Agenda, net neutrality and cloud computing.

It also bade farewell to two long-serving figures in the EBU legal and public affairs sector who are leaving their respective organisations: Mr Nicholas Eldred, the Group General Counsel and Secretary of the BBC, and Ms Vladimíra Vocetková, the Head of Legal Affairs of Czech Television.
