29My conclusion:The small Czech TV market could not afford a luxury of rejecting the product placement.The small Czech TV market may need product placement as an additional source of funding of audiovisual works made for television.Does product placement turns TV programs into commercials?Or does product placement keep the small and financially weak stations from degeneration into teleshopping channels?Who knows? We have to wait and see.Thank you for the attention!
