Project complete: Internet Law Research Clinic

Satellite Internet has global implications, but the regulations around satellites vary between jurisdictions. This makes it difficult to get a broad understanding of where the regulations differ.

A recent Foundation-supported project by Bond University sought to shed light on these differences – they designed a checklist of relevant factors, like types of licenses, regulatory bodies and Internet restrictions (to name just a few) then put 10 different economies through the process.

The resulting fact sheets for Australia, Bangladesh, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Macao, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Viet Nam are not legal advice, but they’re very handy for research. Take a look at them all – they’re freely available via the project page.
