Brazil Media Regulation

The Brazilian government is in the process of implementing new media regulations, as well as a review of the mass communication law. Our client, a prominent player in the Internet sector, is concerned about draft regulations that would apply local content and foreign ownership restrictions in the media sector as well as the Internet. Needless to say, such regulation would decimate their business and force them to withdraw from Brazil. We have been engaged to argue for pro-competitive regulation, and against the harmful effects of the draft. We have had discussions with the Brazilian competition agencies, Communications Ministry and Trade and Development Ministry, as well as with select members of the Brazilian Congress. Large Brazilian media companies are behind the push for this law, and they are formidably powerful players both politically and economically. Our arguments are centered on what is in the interests of the Brazilian consumers.
