Conceptual problems of information society media

Liutauras Ulevičius


Active development of new media must be responded with clear and timely changes in legal regulation. The concept of information society media was introduced for the first time in 2006, when a new edition of the Law on provision of information to the public was adopted. The article reviews earlier legislation, systematically analyses Lithuanian legal regulation, and identifies practical problems. The article provides a structural analysis of information society media, which is based on its legal status, identifies weaknesses of the legal regulation and conceptual issues. Conclusions are made that different legal acts are not harmonised, there are conditions for collisions between legal norms, uniform explanation, and implementation of the legal norms is very difficult.
