Over a relatively short period of time, there have been fundamental changes in the ways consumers access content and the extent to which that content is curated and personalised.
With methods and business models for content delivery rapidly evolving, policy-makers are increasingly considering options for technology neutral regulation across old and new media – whether in terms of media diversity, content regulation or spectrum use. While there is unquestionably a degree of uncertainty about how these issues will be resolved, there are also opportunities in terms of consolidation of content production, strategic sharing of facilities and infrastructure and cross-platform alliances or acquisitions.
Our work with some of the biggest broadcast and digital media companies in Australia and globally, on numerous high-profile matters, has given us a deep understanding of the technology and commercial drivers in this sector and the capability to help our clients successfully navigate this rapidly evolving landscape.
Our experience includes media acquisitions, broadcasting disputes, defamation litigation, advising on the launch of digital streaming products and platforms in Australia, advising clients on participation in law reform projects, and regulatory compliance more broadly.
