The telecommunications industry has undergone fundamental changes in structure, from that of monopoly to one of competition. Advances in technology have resulted in convergence with other industries with separate regulation resulting in the need for consolidation. Much of the laws and regulations examined in this second edition of Telecommunications Law are concerned with this process of change and regulating for competition. Telecommunications Law and Regulation is fully updated and contains new chapters on 'Sources of Law', 'Intellectual Property Issues' and 'Content Regulation', including broadcasting, internet and premium rate services, as well as much expanded coverage of developing countries. It is written by many of the leading experts and practitioners in the field, and offers a thorough survey of the law and regulatory structures relating to telecommunications. This book is a highly accessible and thought-provoking book for postgraduate study.
It is also essential reading for legal practitioners involved in the communications industry and of interest to management consultants, bankers and accountants who will need to be aware of the legal implications of this fast changing area.
