Summary/Abstract "This second edition reflects the maturation of the new media environment brought on by the Internet. A body of legislative measures and case law can now be traced to reveal patterns of jurisprudential wisdom. In the intervening years more people have migrated to cyberspace. Digitalization is at the heart of convergence with the Internet being the primary transmission medium or platform. The convergence of technology has led to the need for regulatory convergence. While some questions have been addressed, many others, perhaps more complex, emerge daily as a result of convergence. This second edition reflects the legal implications of the reality of a post September 11th world."--BOOK JACKET
