Global Leaders in Media Law Practice
Lawyers say that Covid-19 has accelerated the globalising media industry as streaming services expand and the globalisation of content continues.
In October, Fix&Foxi, German children and family channel, expanded into the Gibraltar market with the launch of its pay-TV service on GibFibre.
Armin Schnell, Executive Vice President Sales of parent company Your Family Entertainment, said: “As a result of high-quality and learning-based programming our Fix&Foxi Channel is growing continuously.”
Mr Schnell added: “We are proud to conclude this new partnership with GibFibre and look forward to bringing our blend of quality entertainment and edutainment to children and families in this region.”
In other developments, the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority issued guidance on contact-tracing and location data in the context of Covid-19 and GDPR.
The Guidance Note was published in April and states: ‘As with any emerging technology, it is important to recognise the data protection and privacy risks that may arise as a result.
‘Applications should adopt robust security, data minimisation, transparency and user control, and any supporting technology, including centralised processing to support contact tracing, should follow the same principles.’
