Abstract

As a journalist my instincts are anti-regulatory. But if you look at the wider world of media and communications it is obvious that even open markets need managing. You can’t have competition, for example without safeguards against monopoly. Some infrastructure projects, such as universal high-speed broadband, are so massive and long-term that they need to be nurtured by regulation. The Internet, itself, is a fragile and dynamic communications space that also needs protection.
