From Gutenberg to the Internet – Free Speech in the Era of Media Convergence in the US and UK?


09.07.2010: As technology advances, the lines of division between various media forms have begun to blur. Radio stations now have online content. Newspapers now take to the Internet where they offer not only traditional newspaper content, but also blogs, video streaming and chat rooms. Some radio stations have gone completely online. This symposium will explore the ways in which various media forms have converged, and the implications for governmental regulators. We are looking forward to discuss these questions, present difficulties, expected developments, and possible future solutions with you.
