OTT Regulation - The Internet is becoming not-so-free


The Internet is becoming not-so-free
 Over the last decade a completely new economy has evolved based on the Internet and OTT players. While this had until recently been actively encouraged to galvanise the economy, there is now simply too much revenue involved for the players not to receive regulatory intervention.
 This report looks into such OTT regulatory landscape in the key areas of net neutrality, competition, tax optimization, privacy, and copyrights; the key stakes in each area and how regulation is rolling out (or not) in various leading nations.
 Main countries covered include Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, UK and USA, with India, Taiwan and New Zealand also covered depending on the topic. The European Union as a whole is also covered.
