On 17 July 2013, French broadcasting regulator Conseil supérieur de l'audiovisuel (CSA) opened a public consultation on the implementation of recently introduced rules concerning the broadcast of short extracts of sports events. The new rules were set by a decision of the CSA of 15 January 2013.
Six months after the CSA's decision came in force, the public consultation will provide an opportunity to measure the editorial and economic impact of the new rules, which have come under heavy criticism from sport federations.
Responses to the consultation can be submitted until 27 September 2013. The CSA's decision will be reviewed in the light of the responses.
