Virtual Paley International Series

How Are International Regulations Impacting Media and Streaming Platforms Globally?

Tuesday, July 13, 2021
7:00 to 8:00 am PT / 10:00 to 11:00 am ET / 2:00 to 3:00 pm GMT

As content has gone global, the expansion of streaming platforms in markets across the Middle East, the Americas, and Europe have been hampered by changing and often opaque government regulations. As political walls rise and fall, how will it impact the distribution of content across borders? With the EU set to approve a European production quota, will we see a global shift to local production? The Paley Center will convene diverse perspectives from key markets for a discussion on how the industry can work together to produce and distribute the best content for audiences around the globe.
