Analyzing the role of governments in the regulation of the new "Information Society", the ten chapters in this book stem from a seminar hosted by the European Media Regulation Seminar Group (ESRG) at the University of Warwick. Each chapter explores the regulatory responses of the UK goverment and the EU to commercial, technical and market convergence in the broadcasting, telecommunications, print media and computing sectors. The text focuses on the establishment of satellite pay-TV, telecommunications and the launch of digital terrestrial TV as they blend real and cyber-governance.
