AbstractThis volume discusses the question if governments should have the authority to regulate the content of new media that is based on digital technology. The author examines whether new approaches to freedom of expression are required in the digital era, should there be some form of censorship for public broadcasting and its equivalent in online environments, and if there is a role for public service broadcasting in the digital era.
