    MOSCOW, September 19 (RIA Novosti) – The monopoly of media organizations of providing information is over, Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatovic said Friday at the opening of the second expert meeting on open journalism underway in Vienna.

    "News organizations no longer have a monopoly on providing information," Mijatovic said.

    "We are witnessing irreversible changes in how we receive and spread information," the representative noted.

    According to the official OSCE website, the second expert meeting on open journalism focuses on "the legal implications of Open Journalism, protection of media freedom online, and how the new voices of Open Journalism are recognized and safeguarded with regards to basic human rights."
