UK culture secretary Andy Burnham has confirmed he will create a Ã¢â‚¬Å“co-regulatory body, led and funded by the industry, to take on responsibility for regulating programme content on video-on-demand servicesÃ¢â‚¬Â. Under the new rules, Ã¢â‚¬Å“all UK providers of VOD services will need to notify the co-regulator that they are providing a serviceÃ¢â‚¬Â, BurnhamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s department for culture, media and sport said. The department had previously said such a body could cost Ã‚Â£1.72 million annually to run.
Ah marvellous. Another competitive advantage in the UK ceded to non-UK companies. Brilliant.
