Creativity Works! Event – Interviews with Jonathan Taplin and Dr Ehler MEP



Online platforms are an integral part of today’s digital economy. They increase the speed at which information is shared and introduce consumers to a wide variety of digital goods and services. But their dominant rise casts concern about the largely unregulated role they play in disseminating creators’ content and raises questions about what steps should be taken to safeguard a fair and competitive online ecosystem. We debated this topic at our event “Media, culture and public discourse in the digital age” on 5th November 2018 at the European Parliament.  In this short video, American film and music producer, Jonathan Taplin and Dr Ehler MEP discuss importance of European creative industry, the spread of fake news, and the role of online platforms.
