Regulating the outlaw: The Bitcoin bandit
How should governments respond to the Bitcoin phenomenon and other cryptocurrencies?More
Convergence, digitisation and a seemingly insatiable consumer appetite have driven significant change in the communications, media and technology industries.
Perhaps more than any other industry, these fields, often synonymous with creativity and innovation, have permanently altered the way we interact, obtain information, work, learn and be entertained. They also operate, deliver services and communicate with their customers in ways unforeseen even five years ago. Today, we no longer turn exclusively to television, a newspaper or the internet, but expect to receive content and services through multiple media channels and technologies, often simultaneously.
The rapid change continues to bring new business models and services in key sectors such as entertainment, health and medicine, education and e-commerce, along with an increasingly complex regulatory and legal environment.
Corrs remains at the forefront on major developments affecting these dynamic industries and proudly advises some of Australia’s leading communications, media and technology companies.
