Global watch on culture and digital trade 

The September report deals with the discussions regarding a plurilateral digital trade deal in the Asia-Pacific region under the leadership of the US administration. It also focuses on recent regulation developments, such as the debate about tighter regulation for video-on-demand (VOD) platforms in the United Kingdom (UK) and the policy changes adopted by Apple to its app store. Second, it turns to several cross-national activities of online platforms, highlighting strong competition among global and regional platforms in East Asia and emphasizing the activities of expansion carried out by Britbox, ITsART, Viaplay, as well as by Televisa and Univision.
