Politicians just can't resist the temptation to interfere can they ?
The latest is that the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels want to impose pan European regulations on online video, requiring, for example, that half all content should be produced in the EU (which would put services such as Google Video and Youtube in a bad place).
To their credit, the UK regulatory authority, Ofcom, is strongly resisting these ridiculous proposals, which would merely serve to drive content offshore. At Narrowstep we'd press a button and all our traffic would be come an American service.
The biggest irony is that the EU call their efforts 'Television Without Frontiers' - apparently with a straight face. They're about to learn the real meaning of those words.
