ANEM's December 2011 media monitoring report

(ANEM/IFEX) - The twenty-ninth Monitoring Report contains a legal analysis and assessment of the most important occurrences in the media sector in Serbia in December 2011. Here are some highlights:

• Why the Law on Cinematography is in conflict with the Media Strategy and media system regulations and why it could therefore lead to serious disruptions in the functioning of the media system;
• Whether the Media Strategy is currently being implemented and why the implementation of some of its solutions is important for the functioning of the media system;
• Whether the privatization of the media is possible under the existing legal framework, or it is necessary to wait for the establishment of legal basis, stipulated by the Action Plan of the Media Strategy;
• What the positive developments in the digitalization process are, and what could jeopardize it;
• To what extent the implementation of the Law on Copyright and Related Rights fulfilled the media's expectations, in terms of more fair establishing of collective organizations' tariffs;
• What kind of pressures and attacks were journalists and the media exposed to, who was responsible and how and whether the protection provided by the court in such cases is adequate;
• What kind of working-legal status employees in the media have and whether the changes to the existing framework are necessary in order to adequately regulate the issue of exercising the right to strike in the media.
