Legal framework

For us as a publishing company, independent opinion-making and the protection of young people are very important. As a matter of principle, our journalists are free to report as they see fit independently of social, economic or political interest groups. ProSiebenSat.1 Group youth protection officers also ensure age-appropriate offerings during the legally stipulated broadcasting hours. In addition, we are committed to the responsibilities of our industry for the long term: We have entered into so-called "Gemeinsame Vergütungsregeln" (Joint Remuneration Agreements) with the Bundesverband der Film- und Fernsehregisseure e.V., Bundesverband der Film- und Fernsehschauspieler and the Verband Deutscher Drehbuchautoren e.V.
