Blast from the past? A comparative analysis of broadcasting licensing in the digital era


Schweizer, Corinne; Puppis, Manuel; Künzler, Matthias; Studer, Samuel (2014). Blast from the past? A comparative analysis of broadcasting licensing in the digital era. Journal of Information Policy, 4:507-528.

Abstract

The advent of new broadcasting technologies has eliminated spectrum scarcity as a constraint on broadcasting, and with it one of the justifications for broadcast licensing. Have nations moved away from licensing as a form of regulation of their broadcasting sectors? And concomitantly, is there less opportunity to use licensing as a means of promoting the public interest in broadcasting? The authors address these questions through a comparative study of licensing requirements for terrestrial broadcasting and other forms of television and radio distribution in 18 Western nations.
