Do not adjust your sets -- just amend your records

This morning's online version of the Official Journal of the European Union brings the full text of a brand new piece of EU legislation: Directive 2010/13/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 10 March 2010 on the coordination of certain provisions laid down by law, regulation or administrative action in Member States concerning the provision of audiovisual media services (Audiovisual Media Services Directive). It's nothing to panic about, though. Directive 89/552 -- the original Directive -- has been substantially amended several times and, "in the interests of clarity and rationality the said Directive should be codified".

You can access the new Directive here.
