Broadcast Commission of Jamaica Reviewing Daggering Ban

Jamaica’s Broadcasting Commission is reportedly reviewing the wholesale ban on daggering and explicit music that was effected earlier this year. This review is reportedly being done in an an effort to remove some “gray areas” that have been plaguing media houses that are said to be at risk of license violations.

A Broadcasting Commission official reportedly said “beginning (this) week.., the Broadcasting Commission will be continuing its consultations with broadcast and subscriber television licensees. The directives of February 2009 will be one of the matters to be addressed in the consultation. The commission will be making the findings available when the consultation has been completed.“

Some media houses have reportedly been concerned that the vagueness of the initial directive could lead to inadvertent violation of the broadcasting code. A media house can have its license suspended if it broadcasts three songs that are in violation of the directive.
