For the third time, the European Audiovisual Observatory (OBS), in cooperation with the European Platform of Regulatory Authorities (EPRA), organised a workshop on "Addressing regulatory asymmetries: video-sharing platforms, targeting on-demand services, and services outside the EU" in Strasbourg on 12 December 2016. The two previous workshops were "Empowering users: rating systems, protection tools and media literacy across Europe", in 2014 and "The grey areas between media regulation and data protection" in 2015.

This workshop aimed to discuss the challenges set by existing and upcoming regulatory asymmetries resulting from the EU legal framework as the European Commission published proposal to amend the Audiovisual media services Directive (AVMSD). The three panel discussions concerning the main areas where regulatory asymmetries could be identified: 1) The material scope of the AVMSD and video-sharing platforms; 2) The principle of country of origin and targeting on-demand services; 3) Internal Market and services outside the EU: future perspectives; 4) Dealing with asymmetries – tools and remedies
