The communications sector - A world of change
The Law Council's Business Law Section invites you to attend a seminar focusing on the significant legal challengers in the ever-evolving regulatory landscape of the communications sector. In this half-day seminar, our keynote speakers and expert panellists will discuss in-depth the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's (ACCC) Digital Platforms Inquiry Final Report and the likely government response. The second segment will examine media freedoms and whether the current Australian regulatory framework has the balance right in guarding national security interests while adequately protecting journalists and supporting the provision of high quality news.
