Movie Industry against Europe’s Geo Unblocking Plans

Movie Industry against Europe’s Geo Unblocking Plans

MPAA is nervous about Europe's plans to limit geo-blocking, as they can "cause great harm" to the entertainment industry. The group warned that broad access to video content would result in fewer movies and higher prices for consumers.


Today, consumers willing to watch movies or TV-shows online can only access content they are permitted to see in their country. Meanwhile, the Netflix library can strongly differ between the countries. This is due to the territorial licensing deals, which now are an increasing source of frustration with people being more connected online. This is why the European Commission decided to counter these consumer-unfriendly limitations and suggested to ban certain types of geo-blocking. In response, the MPAA described the unblocking goals as a threat to the movie industry, despite the stated goals of these proposals being offering wider choice to consumers and strengthening cultural diversity.

The MPAA pointed out that such proposals could threaten the practices of territorial licensing and contractual freedom, which have long served as the financial bedrock of local movie industries. The concern lies with losing investors without territorial licensing and other exclusivity agreements, which in turn would lead to lower budgets and fewer movies produced. Moreover, it would limit the freedom of filmmakers to launch their products where and when they want in order to maximize their chance of success in a specific country. The MPAA explains that there are 28 different nations in European Union, all with different cultures, languages and tastes. This is why forcing every film to be marketed and released the same way is a recipe for failure.

According to the movie industry, geo-blocking is also in the best interests of consumers, as it ensures more diversity, more content and lower prices for consumers. So, the MPAA currently encourages movie industry insiders to reach out to their elected representatives to make their position heard. The European Commission is due to decide on geo-unblocking this fall, so in a few months time, we will know whether the MPAA’s pressure manages to keep the status quo intact.

BaBaDapper avatarWell I have to say many of the points in the article stated by the Movie Industry sound counter-intuitive as an end user. Surely a free market is better for diversity and people in Slovakia would still be able to watch a Slovakian film as well as the rest of the world and an file in English? Well a lot of the world could see that and I'd have thought having 10,000,000 viewers would be better than 10,000. And maybe fewer films being produced is a good thing since good films are thin on the ground. And all this territory thing confuses me when I recently wanted to buy my first blu-ray and found there are still 'territory' boundaries on those too. BUT at the end of the day I don't know how the Movie Industry works but it sounds very outdated.

Meanwhile in the world I do know (my own) I will continue with utorrent and PIA to DL things for free that I cannot otherwise get (mainly USA TV). So much for geo-restrictions as a good marketing tool eh?
