Content quotas and ownership restrictions for Canadian broadcasters are outdated and should be abolished: C.D. Howe

, Bitcoin News

Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Chairman Jean-Pierre Blais.

Content quotas and foreign ownership restrictions on telecommunications companies have no place in today’s world, according to one of Canada’s most prominent think tanks.

“The regulatory model for communications providers is ill-suited to current technology that allows users to access whatever they want, however they want, and wherever they want,” authors Benjamin Dachis and Daniel Schwanen said in a new report for the C.D. Howe Institute.

Citing disruptive changes brought about by digital platforms such as Netflix, the authors said Canada regulates its broadcast and communications industries as if it were still in the era of spectrum scarcity.
