The European Audiovisual Observatory researches the legal impact of Brexit on the audiovisual sector

Throughout 2018 the European Audiovisual Observatory followed closely the implications of the UK withdrawal from the EU in the sphere of audiovisual media. Close to the end of the year it published its legal report: "Brexit: The impact on the audiovisual sector“.

The study provides valuable statistics in context – figures as well as facts, regarding the weight of the UK in the European audiovisual market. While an earlier study in 2018 focused mainly on the market and the marketing aspects of Brexit, this latest one deals with the legal aspect and looks inside the main features of the legal framework that will cease to apply when Brexit comes into force by the end of the first quarter of 2019.
