REGULATION AND COMPETITION IN CONVERGENT MARKETS
LUISS - Osservatorio Comunicazioni elettroniche
Sala delle Colonne - Viale Pola 12
Roma, 17 February 2015
The increasing importance of the internet in our lives, the new consumption patterns, the second screen, the growing success of social networks have been the main elements of the transition to the tv 2.0.
Finally, the video on demand, the smart TVs and Netflix bring about many important issues. If the new internet TVs play an important role in leading Italy towards the next generation networks, this change will involve a reflection on some key isses. The arrival of Netflix will cause changes in the transmission, distribution, consumption and content production systems.
- How will this change impact on market regulation?
- How should the new players be regulated?
- How to create a fair regulation for old and new players of the valude chain, in this brand new framework?
- What will the consequences be as for net neutrality? Is it fair to create a privileged lane for those operators that need larger and larger bandwidth?
These will be the main issues discussed during the workshop on 17 Februray at Luiss, which will gather academics, experts, players and regulators.
