CW Member Plum Consulting's report on video sharing platforms released by DCMS

Member News published by Plum Consulting, under Mobile Entertainment & Digital Media, Social Media

In December 2019, CW Member wrote a report for the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport that explored the number and characteristics of video-sharing platforms under UK jurisdiction and the extent to which these platforms are compliant with the terms of the new regulations of the updated Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD).

In 2020 the AVMSD will switch from EU to UK regulation. This report prepares the UK Government for that move, providing detailed insight into the number of video sharing platforms under UK jurisdiction, their size and scope, and their current compliance with the AVMSD.

New regulations will require video service providers to ensure that minors are protected from harmful content, and all users are protected from content inciting violence and hatred.

The report is available here.
