The ‘convergence phenomena’ from a regulator’s perspective
Australian Communications and Media Authority Chairman, Chris Chapman, this evening detailed his learnings and experiences from being at the coal face of regulatory convergence over the last five years, in a speech to the Communications and Media Lawyers Association (CAMLA) in Sydney.
The speech is titled: The ‘convergence phenomena’ from a regulator’s perspective. It marks the ACMA’s first public contribution to the Federal Government’s Convergence Review.
An abbreviated version is to be given tonight and the full version of the speech is available on the ACMA’s website.
The ACMA also released two research papers as contributions to the convergence debate:
- Emerging business models in the digital economy-The mobile applications market
The paper analyses the mobile applications market as part of its research program. It examines the value chain and business models of applications development and use over web, mobile platforms and managed services, in order to consider potential regulatory and consumer issues in the mobile applications market.
- International approaches to audiovisual content regulation: A comparative analysis of the regulatory frameworks
This paper provides an analysis of audiovisual content regulation in selected jurisdictions. It examines the legislative framework, regulatory approach and institutional arrangements for audiovisual content regulation in the European Union, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and the United States.
Both papers can be found on the ACMA website.
