Broadcasting of live sports events; New Avenues for Legal Labour Migration?

Broadcasting of live sports events

On Tuesday, the Legal Affairs Committee will vote on ECR MEP Angel Dzhambazki’s report on the Challenges of sports’ events’ organisers in the digital environment. Sport plays an important role in society and makes significant contributions to education and training, job creation, employability and public health in the Union. Online piracy of live broadcasted sports events is a major challenge that sports events’ organisers face. Currently, there is no specific right at the EU level to alleviate this issue. Also, online piracy is threatening online users with malware or data theft. Mr. Dzhambazki’s report calls on the Commission to enable immediate enforcement of rights for live sports events, including the possibility of issuing an injunction, requesting the real-time blocking of access to or removal of unauthorised online live sports content. The liability for the illegal broadcasting of sports events rests with the providers of streams and platforms and not with fans and consumers, who often unintentionally come across illegal online content and should be further informed on the legal options available. The text further underlines the importance of close cooperation between stakeholders and national authorities.

When: Tuesday @ 9:00

New Avenues for Legal Labour Migration?

On Tuesday, the Civil Liberties Committee will vote on a report on so-called “New Avenues for Legal Labour Migration” aimed to reform the EU Blue Card and attract more manual labour as well as highly-skilled legal migrants and entrepreneurs. For the ECR Group, there is no legal basis in the current Treaties and frameworks for a common migration or labour policy as Member States have the sovereign right to determine volumes of migration as affirmed in Art 79(5) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). Harmonised migration rules erode Member State competencies and will not lead to a regulated distribution of migrants but undermine Member States’ unique and diverse labour market policies.

When: Tuesday @ 9:00
