Have you seen IRIS yet?

Francisco Javier Cabrera Blázquez (Analyst, Legal Information at the European Audiovisual Observatory) writes:
"I am the deputy editor of IRIS, a free legal newsletter published by the European Audiovisual Observatory. The newsletter reports on matters relevant to the audiovisual industry (including, among other things, copyright law). I was thinking that readers of this blog might be interested in it. You can see it here.

Here is some information about the newsletter: IRIS – Legal Observations of the European Audiovisual Observatory reports monthly on the most important legal developments for the audiovisual industry in 36 European countries. In more than 30 short articles, it provides a regular, free overview of what has been happening at national and international level in relation to legislation or court decisions in fields such as broadcasting, cinema, video-on-demand services and IPTV.
IRIS regularly covers themes such as developments in the television, on-demand service and film sectors, as well as closely related events in the communications sector. Expressed in terms of traditional categories of law, the e-newsletter reports on the latest developments in the fields of competition, copyright, data protection, criminal and tax law, for example, insofar as they are particularly relevant to the audiovisual sector. As far as law-related policy developments are concerned, IRIS also contains articles on freedom of information, media concentration, media pluralism, youth protection, self- and co-regulation, etc.
I hope you will find it interesting".
Thanks, Francisco, for letting us know!
