CRTC to examine broadcasting in the new media environment

Interested in new media? Here’s a chance to have your say. On October 15, the CRTC released this press release about its intentions to look at new media and to hold a public hearing on February 17, 2009.

Some things they are looking for:

“Further to this consultation, the CRTC now invites comments on specific questions related to:

  • the definition of broadcasting in new media
  • the significance of broadcasting in new media and its impact on the traditional broadcasting system
  • incentives or regulatory measures for the creation and promotion of Canadian broadcasting content in new media
  • access to broadcasting content in new media
  • other broadcasting or public policy objectives, and
  • the appropriateness of the Commission’s exemption orders for new media and mobile broadcasting services.”

Deadline for comments: December 5, 2008

Oh, and Michael Geist wrote about this, too, so maybe you should check it out!
