I wish to commend the Commission for the outstanding work it has done in developing what I believe is both a stimulating and provocative draft report on its inquiry into broadcasting. The very well researched report provides an excellent overview of the Australian broadcast landscape. I am particularly pleased, therefore, to comment on specific recommendations in the Commission's draft report, drawing from my researching transcultural media impact, media economics, and digital television. This submission focuses on questions related to content regulation, particularly in terms of the social and cultural effects associated with such policy and the potential impact of such regulation on Australian trade in television programming. Specifically, I write to urge you to reconsider draft recommendation 9.3 which argues for the removal of content quotas.
