Public-service broadcasting online: Assessing compliance with regulatory requirements


Latzer, M; Braendle, A; Just, N; Saurwein, F (2010). Public-service broadcasting online: Assessing compliance with regulatory requirements. International Telecommunications Policy Review, 17(2):1-25.

Abstract

Online services of public-service broadcasters in Europe are disputed because they directly compete with online activities of private media. Discussions are similar, but regulatory responses differ. In Switzerland a charter clarifies the conditions for online activities of the public broadcaster (SRG). This paper assesses the SRG’s compliance with these requirements. It (1) develops an analytical approach for such assessment, conducts (2) a content analysis to show the structure and functioning of its websites, and (3) a link analysis to capture the intensity of electronic linking and the pattern of interconnection. The paper shows to which extent the SRG complies with regulations and raises questions of regulatory implications, e.g., whether there is need for rules clarification or regulatory intervention.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
