Emerging Issues: Australian Technology, Media and Telecommunications Sector Insights
We are pleased to bring you the July 2020 edition of Emerging Issues for the Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) sector.
In this Emerging Issue, we take an in-depth look at: the implications of the recent Data Protection Commission v Facebook Ireland Limited (C-311/18) decision and what it means for Australian businesses sharing data globally; developments in defamation law in the context of a number of recent Australian decisions regarding the liability of online media platforms; current opportunities and challenges facing the adoption of blockchain technology, particularly smart contracts; and what the digital shift in Australian clinical trials means for the life sciences industry.
In our short form section, we cover the recent Twitter data breach, pending media reforms in Australia, the rise of investment apps and the competition regulator’s proceedings against Google. We will continue to provide further developments on these updates in future editions – watch this space!
We hope you enjoy this edition.
