the first of March 2010 was  approved the Romani’s Decree , ie, as the Italian government announced, “a legislative decree transposing Directive 2007/65 on the operation of television broadcasting activities, whose objective is to create a modern framework, flexible Simple audiovisual content, including a new definition of audiovisual media services, released by the techniques of transmission.

But we get into detail: The Art. 4 of the measure (which has not yet been published in the Official Journal) provides the following definition of “audiovisual media service”:

“1) a service as defined by Articles 56 and 57 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, which is under the editorial responsibility of a media service provider and whose main objective is the provision of programs to inform, entertain or educate the general public by electronic communications networks.
For audiovisual media service you want to say or television broadcasting, as defined in point i) of this Article (the analogue and digital) and continuous transmission of live as live streaming (broadcast live on the Internet a video that is is recovering) and broadcast on the Internet such as webcasting and video on demand (the near video on demand), or a media service media services, as defined by the letter m) of this article. ”

So by reading the cited art. 4 are not referable to the definition of “audiovisual media service”:

– Services performed in primarily non-economic activities that are not in competition with television broadcasting, such as private websites and services consisting of the provision or distribution of audiovisual content generated by private users for sharing and exchange within communities of interest;
– Any form of private correspondence, including emails;
– Services whose main purpose is the provision of programs;
– Services where audiovisual content is merely incidental and not its principal purpose, as for example:

a) the websites that contain audiovisual elements only accessories such as animated graphical elements, short advertising spots or information related to a product or a service audiovisual

b) online games;

c) the search engines

d) electronic versions of newspapers and magazines;

e) services textual self;

f) games of chance involving a stake in cash, with the exception of broadcasts devoted to games of chance and luck, or

2) audiovisual commercial communication “.

Then continue to “media service provider”, as that provision is to be understood as “the natural or legal person who causes the editorial responsibility for the choice of the audiovisual content of the audiovisual media service and determines the mode of organization; are excluded from the definition of ‘media service provider’ natural persons or legal entities that deal solely with the transmission of programs for which the editorial responsibility lies with third parties.

McAfee Advises on How to Avoid Spam – Most spam messages try to get your machine infected

Inserito da 7 Agosto, 2008 (0) Commenti

Si tratta di :News


Nobody wants to login to their email address and find the inbox chucked full with spam messages, especially since said messages are sent out in order to propagate all sorts of malicious software. Most of the times the goal of the spammer is to infect your machine, turn it into a zombie PC in an ever increasing botnet. According to McAfee, company that specializes in risk management and intrusion prevention, there are three things that you must keep in mind in order to stay safe: the most used spam subject lines, the categories they relate to, and a few tips and pointers meant to keep you safe.

Current Spam Categories

As a rule of thumb, spammers will resort to pretty much any trick they can come up with in order to propagate their malicious intents. According to a study recently updated by the McAfee team, the top three spam categories are products and services (36%), adverts (30%) and stock (11%). Other categories include Russian spam (10%), adult services (7%), and last but not least IT related and financial (both 3%). McAfee also included news and Chinese spam in the list of categories, but they ranked in at 0% (perhaps such categories are not very active in July).

The Most Common Spam Subject Lines

Generally speaking, spammers will use any high profile event or any piece of news that might be of general interest, such as the earthquake that devastated China earlier this year, to make up bogus spam messages. Whenever a celebrity makes the headlines, such as Angelina Jolie after the release of “Wanted”, they once again start sending out messages that promise to show her in an unflattering way (most of the times in circumstances that can only be viewed by adult users).

Here are some of the most used spam subject lines: “Cheap rolex, omega, cartier…lowest prices; Raw video of Paris; Look attractive with larger jackhammer; Woman loses nose after dog attack; Stay stronger and harder.” Pretty much every unsolicited message advertising some adult footage of a well known celebrity is spam.

Tips and Pointers to Avoid Spam

If you have to make your email address available to the general public, and by that I mean putting it up on the web, make sure to obfuscate it. Instead of use the obfuscated version John.smith -at- mail -dot- com. An even better idea would be to use graphic image that depicts your email address.

Do not use the same email address for work related activities and for personal ones. You should have at least two, separate addresses and use them according to the situation. If you want to contact your friends or coworkers then use one email, if you want to post messages on forums or subscribe to newsletters use the other one.

If your Internet service provider offers spam filtering, McAfee suggests that you enable this option. If any spam messages get through the filter, you should report this to your ISP.

Do not provide your email address to any site unless you have read the privacy policy and you agree to it. You must make sure that the web page in question will not sell on your email.

When you receive a spam message, do not open it, do now download any attachments it may include, and never answer back. By replying you are only providing the spammer with confirmation that the email is active, that you are using it frequently.

If a spam message informs you that you need to update your profile info, or verify your bank account details, that message is definitely a phishing attempt. If you click on the web link included in the message you will be directed to a phishing site where the attacker will try to obtain your security credentials.

Your login details are yours to know, and nobody else should get hold of them. Do not give out your username or password to anybody, no matter who requests you to do so.

Make sure to update your security software solution on a regular basis.

Depositata una richiesta di citazione nei confronti dei
due giganti Usa di internet Mediaset chiede 500 milioni
a YouTube e Google per illecita diffusione filmati

«Senza contare la pubblicità». Quantificati in 315.672 i giorni di visione perduti da parte del gruppo tv italiano

MILANO – Cinquecento milion di euro. È?la cifra che Mediaset chiede a Google e YouTube «per illecita diffusione e sfruttamento commerciale di file audio-video di proprietà delle società del gruppo».
LA CITAZIONE – I legali di Mediaset hanno depositato presso il tribunale Civile di Roma un atto di citazione nei confronti dei due giganti americani di internet.
I NUMERI – Secondo quanto riferito da Mediaset «alla data del 10 giugno 2008, dalla rilevazione a campione effettuata da Mediaset sono stati infatti individuati sul sito YouTube almeno 4.643 filmati di nostra proprietà, pari a oltre 325 ore di materiale emesso senza possedere i diritti. Alla luce dei contatti rilevati e vista la quantità dei documenti presenti illecitamente sul sito – prosegue la nota – è possibile stabilire che le tre reti televisive italiane del gruppo abbiano perduto ben 315.672 giornate di visione da parte dei telespettatori». Ai 500 milioni di euro per il danno emergente, precisa Mediaset, «bisognerà aggiungere le perdite subite per la mancata vendita di spazi pubblicitari sui programmi illecitamente diffusi in rete».

Mediaset Seeks 500 Million Euros in Viewing
Rights from YouTube and Google


“Not counting advertising”. Italian TV group estimates 315,672 viewing days lost.
MILAN – Five hundred million euros is the figure demanded by Mediaset from Google and YouTube “for the unauthorised distribution and commercial exploitation of audio and video files owned by group companies”.
LEGAL ACTION – Mediaset lawyers have filed a summons against the two American internet giants at the civil court in Rome.
FIGURES – According to the Italian media group, “as of 10 June 2008, from sample-based surveys carried out by Mediaset, at least 4,363 films owned by our group have been identified on YouTube, equivalent to more than 325 hours of material broadcast without viewing rights. On the basis of the hits recorded, and in view of the number of files present on the site without authorisation, it can be ascertained that the group’s three Italian networks have lost 315,672 television viewing days”. The Mediaset note points out that to the 500 million euros of consequential damages “should be added losses deriving from lost sales of advertising space on programmes broadcast the web without authorisation”.
