🥇If There’s One Story To Read Today TRAI’s struggle to enter content regulation It was an intense discussion last week during MediaNama’s event on TRAI’s convergence paper. Abhishek Malhotra from TMT Law talked about TRAI’s past attempts to enable content and infrastructure regulation. Malhotra went as far back as 2004 to brief folks on how this whole consultation talk came about. Among the many things Malhotra told us, there was an interesting narration about the legal battle between broadcasters and TRAI regarding content regulation that led to a discussion on provisions of the Copyright Act and even the definition of broadcast. Especially regarding the latter, the problem is that it leads to a lack of a legal definition of what constitutes a broadcast. Another problem discussed was the issue of regulatory gaps. All this and more was discussed in this intense session which you can read here.
