Head of our Technology, Data & Digital team, Emma Wright, and partner Rupam Davé have each contributed to the latest edition of the International Comparative Legal Guide (ICLG) – Telecoms, Media & Internet. Emma, as contributing editor, has written an expert analysis chapter which provides an overview of telecoms in 2024. In addition, Emma and Rupam have together written the UK Q&A chapter in the guide.
Emma’s chapter gives an overview of the common issues currently impacting telecoms law and regulation, covering the rise of generative AI in 2023, the subsequent strikes within creative industries and the UK’s current approach to regulation. The chapter also discusses the Online Safety Bill and how this affects everyday users as well as global entities, some of which have already taken an aggressive stance in their opposition to the legislation. This chapter is available to read in full here.
The UK Q&A chapter put together by both Emma and Rupam looks in detail at common issues in telecoms, media and internet laws and regulations from a UK perspective. This chapter can be read in full here.
