Classification - content regulation and convergent media

28 Feb 2012
Description

This Inquiry provided the opportunity to reform Australia’s classification laws to meet the challenges of a convergent media environment.

Piecemeal regulatory responses to changes in technologies, markets and consumer behaviour have created uncertainty for both consumers and industry, and raise questions about where responsibilities lie for driving change. Current legislation is characterised by what the ACMA has described as ‘broken concepts’: laws built upon platform-based media regulation, that become less and less effective in a convergent media environment.
