Meeting the challenge of convergent media policy It’s been a remarkably busy year for Australian media policy. There have been three major reports released that address the future of media policy and regulation in the context of convergent media: the Convergence Review; the Independent Media Inquiry (Finkelstein Review); and the Review of the National Classification Scheme. In fact, 2012 marks the most significant moment in Australian media policy since the 1990s, when the Broadcasting Services Act, the Telecommunications Act and the Classification Act were all legislated.
