Digital technology has transformed global culture, connecting and empowering users on a hitherto unknown scale. Existing paradigms from intellectual property rights to cultural diversity and telecommunications regulation seem increasingly obsolete, confounding policymakers and provoking wide-ranging debate.

This volume draws on numerous disciplines to examine new approaches to regulating communications and cultural production. Common challenges emerge from these essays: regulating in the face of the Internet’s overwhelming scale, establishing jurisdictional clarity, and responding to global communication’s power to dissolve and recreate identities.
