The Association of Commercial Television (AKTV) has completed the second year of its existence during the course of which it continued to develop its strategic marketing and legislative activities.  The most remarkable activity of the past year was a marketing conference for TV advertisers and advertising agencies featuring a marketing super star, Australian professor Mark Ritson. In the field of European legislature, AKTV actively joined the process of creating a Copyright Regulation and, in the Czech Republic, it has been involved in the preparation of the transposition of The Audiovisual and Media Service Regulation (AVMSD) since its inception. After the expiration of the two-year term, there will be a change in AKTV’s president; Prima’s Marek Singer will replace Nova’s Jan Vlček.
