TMT Perspectives Insight & Commentary on Business, Legal and Policy Developments Affecting the Telecom, Media, and Technology Sectors


About the Blog

TMT Perspectives examines developments at the intersection of business, law and policy in the technology, media and telecom sectors. These sectors spur rapid change. Business models quickly adapt and investments are made. Changes in law and policy follow and are seldom neutral. Understanding this ecology is important to understanding the TMT markets themselves.

Here we highlight business, legal and policy developments that have the potential to affect large-scale change in the TMT sectors. The focus through which we do this are the New York financial markets and the Washington, D.C. legal and policy prism.
