The EU are – according to the Times, so take with a pinch of salt I suppose – considering extending the definition of ‘broadcast TV’ to include web video. Which would, of course, bring web video under TV compliance rules. Which would be unwieldy and barking.
Luckily, it seems that Shaun Woodward, the Broadcasting Minister – as well as OFCOM – are adopting a position that may be characterised as ‘rolling one’s eyes and saying “Oh, for heaven’s sake!”,’ which is likely a good thing. Still – worth keeping an eye on this one, I think.
