Abstract

One of the main goals of regulating broadcasting programs is protecting


the audience from content that can cause harm or damage the consumer.


When it comes to advertising consumers should be protected from fake or


misleading advertising messages. Moreover, another goal of regulating


broadcasting is the protection of the freedom of expression and the


democratic values of the society, fostering and developing cultural


identity, promoting tolerance and cultural dialogue.


In the paper we will address the regulatory measures for the protection of


democratic principles and values and individual rights such as: the right


to privacy, protection of dignity, protection against harm, the right to reply


and correction. We will also look at the regulatory aspects of the


protection of minors from content that may adversely affect the


development of children, recognition and protection from hate speech,


content that incites crime, disorder or racial, religious or ethnic hatred and


intolerance.
