Convergence Review

Monday, April 30th, 2012

The Commonwealth Government has released the Final Report of the Convergence Review (pdf).

While initially there were some indications that this review might relate to intellectual property issues, especially copyright, the Final Report focuses on the areas of regulation traditionally covered by labels like “broadcasting”, telecommunications, “spectrum allocation”, “media ownership” and “local content” requirements.

The Minister’s Press Release notes that:

The release of the report provides an opportunity for stakeholders to engage with the Committee’s recommendations. I expect the recommendations will generate robust public debate

and indicates the Government will respond in due course
