With the announcement in July that Instagram has launched a new video sharing platform - IGTV – it’s clear that VSPs are this season’s hot topic. But what rules do they have to respect? How does European legislation sheriff the wild wild west of content sharing platforms such as YouTube? And what of Facebook? How does European law define their role and responsibilities? High time for the European Audiovisual Observatory’s new report.

This brand new study is authored by the Observatory’s legal and market experts: Francisco Javier Cabrera Blázquez, Maja Cappello, Gilles Fontaine, Ismail Rabie and Sophie Valais. Head of Legal Department Maja Cappello presented the report at a Video Sharing Platform (VSP) conference in Paris at the beginning of June.
