LEGAL ISSUES IMPACTING VIDEO CONFERENCING
Video conferencing as a technology has been in existence for quite sometime. However, the advent of the year 2020 has completely changed the landscape for this industry. With more than 1 billion people forced to be behind doors at home, video conferencing has become defacto default communication for numerous stakeholders. The increased usage and reliance on video conferencing is now a ground reality. It has also highlighted various practical cyber legal challenges that video conferencing as a paradigm is throwing up. Today video conferencing as a phenomenon attracts various contentious and complex legal, policy and regulatory issues which need to be appropriately addressed by relevant stakeholders in the coming times.
This book will look at some more significant and important legal, policy and regulatory issues pertaining to video conferencing in general and specifically pertaining to the new complex issues that video conferencing has been facing ever since its massive adoption and usage since the advent of the year 2020. These issues are crucial for the further development of video conferencing.
This book looks at the work done internationally in terms of legal approaches to video conferencing and practical lacunas that are arising in this direction. It further highlights key thrust areas which need to be addressed by lawmakers and policymakers in different parts of the world so as to provide enabling legal frameworks for video conferencing and to meet its varied challenges in cyberspace that video conferencing is currently facing.
Given my work in Cyberlaw jurisprudence, I believe that legal approaches pertaining to video conferencing need to be further substantially evolve in the coming times. The experiences of the world in video conferencing in the year 2020, are going to substantially enrich the future approaches on the said subject in the coming times.
The book is written in layman’s language so as to simplify some of the legal complexities concerning video conferencing. This book should be of value to not just all stakeholders in the video conferencing ecosystem but also specifically lawyers, judges, prosecutors, law enforcement agencies, law students and any other stakeholder who is interested in knowing more about the legalities concerning video conferencing.
