UK blasts EU Internet regulation plans

Shaun WoodwardMinister for Creative Industries Shaun Woodward has blasted European Commission plans to extend television regulation to the Internet:

"We have serious concerns over the inclusion of non-linear services [such as video-on-demand] in the Directive. This is neither desirable nor practical, as there is nothing to stop companies relocating outside the EU to bypass regulations. Companies may relocate, taking jobs and services elsewhere, while the content is still consumed here."
