UE: New cartel procedure

O chestiune care se mai discuta uneori si in Romania, in alti termeni: drepturile de difuzare ale meciurilor. In Germania, pentru a evita ca drepturile de transmisie sa fie vindute unui singur cumparator, ele vor fi impartite in "pachete" de difuzare.. Detalii gasiti mai jos:

Commitments were given by the German Football League (DFL) regarding the marketing of the media rights to German first and second division matches. The revised agreement reached with the DFL is aimed at opening up the joint selling of these rights, particularly in connection with new media, such as UMTS and broadband internet. Under the new system, the broadcasting rights will be sold in a number of separate packages, to avoid that one single broadcaster acquires all the rights. From the start of the 2006/7 season, every match day the League will offer at least 90 minutes live reporting with all highlights on the internet. In addition, from the same season the football clubs will be able to market their home games themselves, and to show their matches live via mobile phones.

As required under Regulation 1/2003, the Commission has published a summary of these commitments in the Official Journal, inviting interested third parties to submit their comments. This is the first public consultation under Regulation 1/2003, and the first time that the Commission proposes to use its powers to make commitments binding (Article 9(1) of Regulation 1/2003).
