Media

Overview

The media and broadcasting market is constantly developing to meet increasing demands and embrace new and emerging technologies. Malaysia is no exception, with major players increasing their range of services to include IPTV and Internet services and satellite broadcasting. New forms of content and programming for mobile and wireless services, and on-demand distribution platforms continue to be unveiled at a rapid pace, offering broadcasters and advertisers innovative ways to market and distribute their services and products.

Our lawyers come from a diverse background, and include those from the industry. We are therefore familiar with industry practices as well as the licensing, content and regulatory requirements in broadcasting and publishing, having worked with numerous multinationals, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). Our work encompasses all forms of media including radio, television, newspapers and other printed media.

We are well aware that clients seek lawyers who understand and appreciate the nuances of these industries, and who keep abreast with the latest developments. We strive to provide up-to-date, commercial and practical advice and will work with our clients to develop strategies and programmes to meet the industry’s ever changing demands.
