Jurisdiction and the Media
Chapter Seven examines the relationship between cross border flows of media content and the development of European and international rules of jurisdiction. It covers both the principles that govern the application of public laws and regulations to foreign based content providers and the rules of private international law that concern the domestic resolution of civil disputes. This includes the European Union principle of establishment as a basis for national regulatory jurisdiction as well as the Brussels I Regulation. The Chapter looks at the development of international rules demarcating authority over radio spectrum and jurisdiction over broadcast services and then discusses different approaches to the problem of applying territorially based jurisdictional to internet based media services. It also discusses efforts to reach multilateral solutions, including work within the Hague Conference on Private International Law.
