It’s something nobody expects and in all likelihood is not planned for. Yet the number of early morning raids by authorities on media companies is rising.

John Schmidt and Wilson Mudge, partners in the London and Washington, DC offices of law firm Arnold & Porter, are keen to make sure that potential targets for raids are better prepared. They have written a guide for media companies that’s published in The Channel.

This subject was first covered in the AIB’s Member-only Market Intelligence Briefing. This is delivered to AIB Members across the globe with information that’s relevant to their businesses, ranging from technology to territory analyses, legislative changes to co-production opportunities. The Market Intelligence Briefings are just one of the wide range of services that the Association for International Broadcasting delivers to its Members.

If your company is not currently an AIB Member, read our Guide to Membership booklet and then start a conversation with us. The AIB is here to help.
