Possibilities of self-regulation in a convergent media world
From 13.00 o' clock until 18.45 o' clock
Voluntary Self-Monitoring of Multimedia Providers (FSM) & Voluntary self-regulation of television (FSF)
Museum für Film und Fernsehen (4. OG), Berlin, Germany

The classical media is merging increasingly with the possibilities of the Internet. It is smoothly possible to retrieve up-to-date messages from the online version of the daily press, even if the print publication was missed out. Whether the radio programme, films on TV or simply information about companies or important humans: Everything is available on the Internet. According to a study of the institute tfactory - specialised in research about young people - the 11 to 39 year old people take 40% of their medium usage time for being on the Internet, 25% of their time is spent for watching television and only 10% is used for radio and print media.

The event will inform about the media use of young people as "digital natives" and about the tasks for regulatory bodies as consequences of the new development. The discussion to be held on the afternoon will focus on the question, how much collaboration is feasible.
