Goverment talks TV rights

Panel calls for boost in distribution

A government advisory panel is calling for more rights for TV production companies to boost international and Internet distribution of Japanese content.

Broadcasters provide coin for production companies and retain all the rights, including for Webcasts and overseas sales. Panel wants broadcasters to relinquish some of these rights for a trial period in fiscal 2008.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications set up the panel in November, with participants including the Fuji and TBS webs.
