About ten years after the introduction of the list of major events mechanism in the Television without Frontiers Directive and after a decade of decision-making practice in the application of antitrust law to the joint sale and acquisition of sports broadcasting rights, it seems appropriate to review whether the European sports fan has ultimately benefited from the approaches taken by the Community institutions and to assess, forward-looking, whether the existing regulatory framework is still workable in the digital media landscape. In this article, the authors critically analyse and evaluate the EU's actions to ensure fair access to sports broadcasting rights.

  • The only platform for focused, rigorous analysis of global developments in media law, this new peer-reviewed journal is:

    • essential for teaching and research
    • essential for practice
    • essential for policy-making.

    It turns the spotlight on all those aspects of law which impinge on and shape modern media practices - from regulation and ownership, to libel law and constitutional aspects of broadcasting such as free speech and privacy, obscenity laws, copyright, piracy, and other aspects of IT law. The result is the first journal to take a serious view of law through the lens.
