Welcome to The Digital Watcher blog, a blog about the law and regulation of telecoms, media and technology.

Providing authoritative, accessible and relevant information and commentary, we cover UK and European (and from time to time some other international, but not US) telecoms and technology legal and regulatory topics such as the European digital single market regulation (networks and content), European data protection, European cyber-security, the UK’s Communications Act, RIPA, IPA and the Digital Economy Act as well as regulatory consultations, decisions and actions from European and UK governments, agencies and courts including the European Commission, CJEU, ECJ, BEREC, DCMS, Ofcom, ICO, PSA, CAT (and others). We love a conversation, so if you have views please do comment or contact us.
