This title braids together a number of thematic threads that are all too often considered isolated. It measures relevant definitional shortcomings through a focus on actual problems, as well as plausible sources of interpretational divergence from which future problems are likely to stem. All of this complemented by a panorama of the relevant sections of instruments dealing with neighbouring communications services and some tentative suggestions for strengthening structures and systems for the resolution of disputes concerning jurisdiction over broadcasters.Also available in German (see Non-official languages).
