State Media Acts (LMG), which are part of the media laws, exist in every federal state. The State Media Act dates from 2005 and has been amended several times in the following years.
The basis for the State Media Acts (LMG) is the Interstate Broadcasting Treaty
(RStV). The State Media Acts lay down state-specific regulations and the individual licences. Theallocation of frequencies
iscarried out after examination by the State Media Authority
(LMA). The State Media Acts deal with their scope of application, media freedom, protection of minors, the obligation to provide information, data protection and much more.
