Telecommunications markets are characterised by constant and rapid technological change and evolution. It is now 10 years since the present telecommunication competition laws of Pts XIB and XIC of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) were introduced. During this time, there have been significant changes to networks, infrastructures and business operations. The issue of reform is however gaining the attention of law reformers. In 2005 the government released an issues paper on Telecommunications Competition Regulation. In 2003, the European Union introduced an innovative new framework for the regulation of all electronic communications. This article addresses the topic of the continuing effectiveness of Pts XIB and XIC, and considers the extent to which the government’s issues paper addresses the identified weaknesses of the present regulation. The article analyses the new European regulatory framework to ascertain whether the model is of assistance in designing an effective telecommunications competition regulatory framework for Australia.


Unravelling the Mystery – A Comparative Introduction to Product Liability Law in the U.S. and Europe
Brandon J. Riordan
South Carolina Journal of International Law and Business
Volume 1, Fall 2003


Written primarily for the business practitioner in the wake of increased globalization, this article presents a comparative look at product liability tort law in the United States and Europe. This article is intended to assist practitioners in their business decisions and to help them understand that the dogma is essentially the same between the two regions. The article begins by discussing the evolution of product liability tort law in the U.S., and gives a general overview of the present state of this law. It predicts that Europeans are afraid to bring their products to the U.S. because of the lack of uniformity. The article then provides a survey of the legal landscape of the European Union and follows the development of a common product liability legal standard among the various European Union member states, while noting several exceptions. The article provides a comparison of the applicable law between the two regions and shows how the two may differ. The article concludes that the basic doctrines of product liability tort law, primarily in terms of strict liability, are the same in Europe and the United States, though the procedures in reaching the end result may be somewhat different. The article asserts that business practitioners should not be afraid to invest in one market but not the other because of unforeseen costs or legal problems. An unsafe product in one region will most likely be considered unsafe in the other.
