EP states self-regulation is best for audiovisual industries

In a resolution adopted on 10 April, the MEPs
demanded more self-regulation by the audiovisual industry to
protect children from harmful online content.

In their Resolution the members of the European Parliament:

  • state children's welfare is primarily the
    responsibility of their legal guardians;
  • favour self-regulation by the industry and are
    concerned at recent moves to block access to certain
    websites;
  • call on the Member States to set up hotlines to
    handle complaints about illegal or harmful internet
    content.
  • call for reliable filter and rating systems for
    digital broadcasting;
  • urge the Commission to promote the creation of
    user-friendly content filter systems at affordable prices
    so as to support parental control.
