New Zealand Law Commission Consultations on News Media in Digital Age

The Law Commission of New Zealand is conducting consultations on the need for changes to the regulatory regime for news media in the digital age.

It is looking at who regulates the media as well as at whether existing criminal and civil remedies for wrongs such as defamation, harassment, breach of confidence and privacy are effective in the new media environment.

In December 2011, the Commission released a discussion paper ("Issues Paper")  and invited submissions. Earlier this week, it released a list of submissions received.
