      EC set to launch infringement procedure over Italian media law

      The European Commission is set to launch an infringement procedure against Italy over a media law potentially curbing Vivendi's interests in the country, Reuters reported citing newspaper la Repubblica on Friday. The Commission in December raised questions over the validity of the law approved by Rome in November which allowed national communications regulator AGCOM to start a probe into Vivendi's Italian assets to evaluate whether these holdings are harmful to media plurality.
