Examines the legal frameworks under communication law currently employed to regulate traditional forms of both telecommunications and broadcasting. It also explores how the dramatic evolution of convergence technologies in the context of an extremely competitive business environment has forced a re-evaluation of the regulation of communications.
The four "Cs" of communications law are all covered:
- Carriage - the legislative and institutional mechanisms of regulation and control - including an examination of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission Act, the Radiocommunication Act and the Telecommunications Act. Foreign ownership/control restrictions, private sector participation and the role of competition are among the topics addressed
- Content - in addition to the legal regulatory framework, Canada's public service and cultural policy are also addressed both historically and in today's era of globalization and deregulation. Selected CRTC regulations and licensing decisions are discussed
- Convergence - recent developments in business, technological and legal/regulatory frameworks are addressed as are substantive and enforcement issues
- Competition - applicable domestic competition law principles and transnational competition law issues
The full text of relevant legislation, regulations and treaties is also included.
