The European Union's policies on movies and music could change after EU culture ministers recommended over the weekend a shift in their voting on such issues, agreeing that cultural policies need not be decided by unanimity as they have been until now. The recommendations will be sent to the European Convention, the meeting scheduled for Brussels to make a new constitution for the EU as it prepares to expand from 15 members to 25 next year. EU Culture Commissioner Viviane Reding used the meeting to warn about the dangers of exposing children to sex and violence in movies, the Internet and video games.
