Future media lounge: new privacy rules and their impact on funding a free and independent press in europe

ICT and Digital Agenda
Date: Tuesday, 05 September 2017 18:00 - 20:00

Venue: Renaissance Brussels Hotel  |  City: Ixelles, Belgium


This edition of Future Media Launge will examine the European Commission’s proposal for a regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications. Following the adoption of the new General Data Protection Regulation in May 2016, the Commission has moved forward with a new ambitious legislative project: a regulation that will set the future of privacy in the context of electronic communications. With this debate the Future Media Lounge will focus on the potential implications of the proposed ePrivacy regulation on a free, independent, pluralistic and vibrant press across Europe. Its possible implications on the business model of press publishers and therefore the funding of trusted journalism will be debated as well as its potential impact on media diversity and access to journalistic content for European citizens. The session is co-organised with EDAA (the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance) and will therefore include a presentation of the cross-industry self-regulation initiative to enhance transparency, user choice and control over Online Behavioural Advertising.

This Future Media Lounge will be moderated by Karen Massin, CEO of Burson-Marsteller in Brussels.

Speakers include MEP Marju Lauristin (S&D/EST), Xavier Bouckaert (CAO of Roularta Media) and Angela Mills Wade (EDAA Board Member and Executive Director of the European Publishers' Council).
