UK - Online video regulation structure outlined by Government

(OUT-LAW News)
Media regulator Ofcom will take over the regulation of video on demand services, but will delegate it to an industry-formulated co-regulator. The Government has published details of how it will ensure that the UK complies with the European Union's Audio-Visual Media Services (AVMS) Directive, which extends regulation to television-like programmes regardless of the medium used to show them.
