Summary/Abstract: Different implications of media ownership on democratic capacity of Serbian society in the beginning of the new millennium are analysed in the paper. The frame of the research is democratic and market model of media policy which was established after political changes in Serbia in 2000. The aim of the paper is to identify the main problems of media ownership in Serbia in the process of adjustment to the European media policy. In order to understand the genesis of marked problems, they are observed in the context of current trends on wider – global – media market. It can be concluded that democratic and market model of media system does not guarantee the conditions for democratic public discussion and satisfaction of public interest.
