New info on the status of the State Media Treaty

This post is also available in: Deutsch

Right now, information on the Interstate Treaty on the Media in the form of the 23rd Amendment to the Interstate Treaty on Broadcasting is coming thick and fast. I have just been contacted by a very trusted source in Berlin politics whom I have known for many years and who is intensively involved in the political deliberations and the expert commission in the area of the Interstate Broadcasting Treaty.

According to my acquaintance, there was massive criticism and opposition to this draft of the agreement, especially with regard to the fiction of broadcasting licensing and the questionable definition of petty broadcasting. There are currently intensive efforts in involved political circles to abolish the approval completely. How far this is possible remains to be seen, but it is currently unclear how the new regulation will look.

Since there was just the expert hearing, the whole draft may be rewritten again. The bad thing is that it’s unclear if anything will come of it this year. According to my source, there is no way that the Interstate Treaty on Media and thus the amendments, for example, on small-scale broadcasting will come into force this year…

However, this does not change much of the information in my current video. Streamers who receive corresponding letters from the state media authorities are best advised to speak with a lawyer and evaluate the alternatives. These could also lie in taking advantage now of the fact that many countries have recently sharply reduced the fees for broadcasting licenses! However, this should be thought through carefully.
