Continual changes to technology and the ways in which end users consume information means that the laws in relation to the telecoms and media sectors are under constant review. We are pleased to have contributed again to the Telecoms and Media edition of Getting the Deal Through. Lawyers from across the globe have authored chapters that give an overview of the framework in these areas across a wide range of different jurisdictions, providing a go to guide for global TMT businesses. We have authored the chapters for the UK, EU, Italy, China and UAE.


The answers to the questions posed in this publication address not only the regulatory structure in each market, but also the practical aspects of how those regulations impact on service providers and end users alike. The responses to each question highlight any key changes over the past year, as well as any proposed plans for change and future developments. In answering these questions, the responses seek to address both the legal and practical aspects of these industries.
