“The attempt by ministers in the EU to raise the quota of European content in digital streaming services to 30 percent will end up hurting consumers by artificially raising prices for everyone. It benefits producers in some countries and hurts them in others. Overall, it will only end up raising costs for all European citizens.
The goal of encouraging more European arts and film is a noble one, but it shouldn’t come at the expense of ordinary Europeans who would prefer to make their own choices on the content they’d like to consume.”
