MILAN Dec 20 Italy's Mediaset warned on
Tuesday that the aggressive stake-building by France's Vivendi
risked to paralyse the Italian broadcaster.
The Milan-based group said that it would adopt all measures
to protect its assets from the recent moves by the French media
giant led by Vincent Bollore, considered to be not coherent with
the initial intentions to create an industrial partnership
between the two groups.
Mediaset also said that it would file a complaint with the
Italian communications authority for Vivendi's "illegitimate
conduct and its possible obstacle to Mediaset's development
strategies". It added that it would also request "provisional
and urgent measures".
