TTIP - AV - Meeting report EBU 08/09/2015 
Categories: 
Comments from party 
Attendants: 
EBU (European Broadcasting Union - public broadcasters):  [Art. 4.1(b)]
 (EBU),  [Art. 4.1(b)]

 (ZDF). 
TRADE: [Art. 4.1(b)]
-  Meeting at the request of EBU, to clarify certain aspects of the TTIP offer / text, 
and remind EBU's messages; 
-  EBU has defensive interests in TTIP: higher development perspectives within the 
EU than outside; US broadcasters have economies of scale (vs segmented market 
in the EU); 
-  Convergence remains the most difficult issue: EBU supports principle of 
technological neutrality; EU should resist the notion of digital products; prefers 
positive to negative listing; 
-  EBU asked about the provision on "legitimate policy objectives" (Art. 1.1) Æ 
TRADE: partially reflects point xviii of the EP Recommendations (Lange Report); 
footnote 1 pending broader discussion on ISDS; distinction with General 
Exception on archaeological sites; 
-  Split "broadcasting" vs "audiovisual" in e-commerce chapter (Art. 6.1.3); 
-  Scope of Domestic Regulation (applying to sectors where "specific commitments" 
exist) Æ TRADE: does not cover AV. 
-  Radio spectrum: EBU has defensive position on UHF tradability (Arts 5.21 and 
5.22); 
-  Finally, there was an exchange of views on ongoing COM initiatives - upcoming 
consultation on "Platforms"; AVMSD Refit (EBU supports country of origin 
principle, with some touches to insert country of destination).
