ByrneWallace LLP hosts Online Safety & Media Regulation breakfast briefing in association with Dublin ChamberThursday, 27 April 2023
ByrneWallace LLP, in association with Dublin Chamber, are hosting a breakfast briefing on the recently enacted Online Safety and Media Regulation Act and the newly established regulator, Coimisiún na Meán.
Ireland’s newest regulator, Coimisiún na Meán, was formally established on 15 February 2023, to regulate content consumed through non-traditional media including audiovisual on-demand providers (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney) and video-sharing platforms (YouTube, Facebook, TikTok). Coimisiún na Meán has a wide remit including the implementation of a new regulatory framework for online safety and has been provided with significant powers so as to allow it to achieve its aims including search and seizure as well as the ability to impose administrative fines.
At this seminar, a panel of media industry experts and a member of Coimisiún na Meán will discuss how the Online Safety and Media Regulation Act and Coimisiún na Meán is likely to impact on organisations within this sector.
Panellists will include:
- Rónán Ó Domhnaill, Media Development Commissioner, Coimisiún na Meán
- Dr Maria Murphy, Associate Professor, School of Law, National University of Maynooth
- Peter McCarthy, VP Legal & Corporate Affairs, Virgin Media
- Dualta Ó Broin, Head of Public Policy, Meta
This event will be moderated by Mark O’Shaughnessy, Partner, Disputes & Investigations, ByrneWallace LLP, who specialises in media law and reputation management.
